Re: why are these kids dying?????

I do not know why children are dying but do have a thought. Maybe parents at first think it is just a cold and do not bother getting medical attention soon enough for their children.

Remember, little ones do not have the stamina for big bugs.

Re: why are these kids dying?????

My three yr old has been in/out of the hospital this week with the flu and believe me, its a big deal!! I would hope and think that anyone that has a small child with a very high fever (in my case 104/105) they would bring them to the doc regardless of if they thought it was the flu or not!! Bring your kids to the doc (or at least call) if their fever gets over 102...that has always been my rule of thumb no matter what season it is!! You never know that is for sure!
