One of the teenagers in our church was down with the flu for a week, we learned yesterday. She is an athlete, and cherished by her family. She is recovering well.
The mother told Carol that the physician did not do any special testing to determine whether this was H1N1, but treated her with a tamiflu regime as if it were. Furthermore, he also gave her younger sister, who had no symptoms, the same course. The younger sister has serious, congenital heart issues, so for her the treatment was prophylactic.
