The flu has invaded

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. We enjoyed ours but our x-mas eve was spent in the ER...

Monday B was throwing up, like projectile vomit, all day. He had a low grade fever, was very tired, and was gasping at times. Throwing up is rare for B so we called his Dr at 5pm to see what she said and were suggested to go to the ER. We left my in laws and drove an hour north to be at Children's since all his records and Drs are their.

Kinda glad and grossed out D got this pic. Projectile vomit is not even the word for this. The joys of motherhood

We were afraid it may be his shunt since shunt malfunction has the same symptoms as the flu. The gasping had us worried.

The ER was packed with sickies and luckily once they saw B's extensive medical history and saw him gasping we got right in...no wait. 

After we got an IV in for fluids we started to rule out things one by one. Head x-ray, shunt was fine. MRI, no swelling in head. Stomach x-ray, nothing unusual.






B started to cry, more like wailing, at about 11pm. We decided to give him a dose of morphine. The Drs decided B had a bad stomach flu virus. Severe pain can present with the flu in some kiddos, special needs kids often have different symptoms with colds/flus than a typical kiddo. The gasping and pain can happen with flu.

After the morphine kiddo was ready to party at 1am...



Acting much more himself we had the option to be admitted for monitoring or we could just do it at home. We chose to go home for Christmas...after 8 hours in the ER.

We got a Rx for Hydro-codeine for pain and an anti nausea med to help with the vomiting (a lifesaver drug).


We finally got home at 3am. Little man slept till 10am and slept most of the day. The codeine brought some smiles and B's typical personality for a few hours.

My parents came to us for x-mas because I didn't want B to leave so he could rest.

The 'throw up' shield.



Codeine has kicked in!

Today B is feeling a little better. Sleeping mostly...on dad. He has generously shared his flu with me. Derek had to call into work to help out. 

So lots of rest around here and hopefully soon we can all shake this bug.
