my daughter is sick
My 22 yr. old Daughter who lives in Astoria, OR has been really sick for over a week now and we think she has Swine Flu because she has all the symptoms.

She is going to the ER when it gets light out because she has to walk 6 blocks to the hospital, she doesn't drive and doesn't know anyone with a car and doesn't have $ for a cab.

I feel really terrible that I can't help her, it's a 5 hour drive from me and my car is not running well and I'm not sure I could make it and I am worried that if I did get there that I might catch whatever she has.

She also does not have health insurance and she is worried will lose her job if she misses too many days.. it took months to get this job and she barely makes enough to pay rent and buy food

It's a really sucky situation and I am very worried

I am sorry that your daughter is sick and I hope she gets to feeling better and that she does not loose her job because of it. I also feel sorry for you because I know how hard it is on a mother when things are not going good with their children---especially if they are not in a position where they can go to them or help them out. I really hope things are better for both of you soon.

she has a mild case of pneumonia...they gave her some antibiotics and cough syrup and she was able to get 4 days off straight from work (2 work days off combined with her 2 reg. days off).. she slept almost the whole time

Last night was her 1st night back at work and she felt much better but still has a nasty cough, which I am sure she will have for awhile (I send her some mucinex to help keep it loose)

thank you for asking
