This is a bad camera phone pic...but he doesn't look much better in person. Wednesday he woke up from his 3 hour nap with a fever out of the blue of 102.9...and didn't want to get up. Tylenol didn't touch the 7:30 I decided to take him to Children's Health Care of Atlanta...cause...he is never sick with more than a cold...his last antibiotics...were when he was in the NICU almost 3 years ago. The doc at Children's said it is a virus. He slept from 11:00p.m. to 12:55 a.m...we watched cartoons until 4 a.m. and he finally fell asleep until 8:30 a.m. when I woke him up and took him to his regular doctor because a fever at 103.9 with Motrin not taking it down any was just not good enough for me. Dr. Dixon...always so good and sweet said he could tell by his red puffy bloodshot eyes that it was the flu...but he wanted to test to be sure...10 minutes later...POSITIVE test for the off we go to Walgreens to get TamiFlu...and they didn't have any...luckily a mom and pop pharmacy did...(I'd never been there but boy-howdie they have a huge selection of the cutest I will go back to Christmas shop!!!)

So here is the deal...on the Children's Health Care of Atlanta website...they say "we will not test for the flu...because everybody has it". Tried and true they will not...
