Once infected by the pig flu virus, it takes 4 days to incubate, then bang, your temperature soars. If you take Tamiflu within 48 hours of the onset of the fever, your temp comes down and you're OK 4 or 5 days later. Day 3, the day before the fever kicks in, is the day when you are most likely to infect others.
I know all this because one of my students is a nursing director at a big hospital and she told me. Then on Friday my 6-year old daughter's temp hit the roof. Yesterday she was diagnosed with Pig Flu, given Tamiflu and today the temp has come back to normal.
The only problem is that it probably means my wife, 3-year old daughter, or me are going to be next, starting Monday/Tuesday.
(that's why I posted Tony & Batty's Happy Birthday early because I went to bed at 8 pm yesterday)
