I have had it for three weeks; well it was the flu for two weeks and it turned into bronchial pneumonia. Now I wonder.... why did I get that flu shot?

Mine started with a headache and sore throat. I had a fever, chills, aches. Ugh. The doctor said it usually only lasts a few days but I have been sleeping only four or five hours a night (staying up late and waking up at 5 am) which did not help. My kids only had it for a few days thankfully.

I hope you feel better soon... it has to be one of the worst flus I have had in the past 20 years or more!

I hear you for 2 days straight I had that I couldnt even get off of the bed. They say that gravol doesnt even work for this strain and as far as I know they are right because it sure didnt work for me. I thought I was going to die. It was awful!

I had horrible stomach cramps and puked for about 12 hours straight and that was it. That was a few weeks ago, though. My daughter has had it twice and developed pneumonia from a cold :( I have a bad cold and nasal congestion...but that's it.

Other than this year...the only time I've had the flu in the last about 10 years is the one and only year I got the flu shot. Go figure lol I haven't had the flu shot since.

my daughter just got over her cold, it lasted exactly 2 weeks. when she went to the doctors for her check up (had nothing to do with her cold) the doctor said it lasts about 2 -3 weeks. lots of kids have had this cold this winter.
Your daughter feeling better yet?.

She's still sick. She still has a bit of a fever and is a bit achy and a really runny nose. Disgustingly runny. The good news is, she's learned how to successfully blow her nose all by herself lol

lol, thats good, i wish i could of taught mine to blow her nose, it bothered me that you can hear it and know that if she just knew how to blow it would all come out, i tried to nose sucky thing, that just pissed her off after awhile she d see me coming with it and freak out and turn her head,..lol..but shes all better now thank god. How long does pneumonia last? Shes had it for a while now...poor thing..

When I was in the hospital last week (after she swallowed a metal hair clip) the xrays still showed some pneumonia. The Dr. said it may last up to a month...she sounds better and is acting more like herself, so I'm not overly concerned anymore. I'm still keeping a close eye on her, though.

She'll be two in May...it's about time she learned to blow her nose lol It's cute, she'll grab a kleenex and blow into it, ball it up and put it in the garbage...all by herself! hehe

omg she swallowed a hair clip? did they take it out or did she poop it out, thank god she did not choke, it could of been worse..kids will be kids, i think every kid swallows something in their life..lol.
