Well it was a full 7 days of fevers spiking up and down (with a high of 104.6), but the doc says the tests came back negative for H1N1.  hubby is disappointed as he really wanted to be able to say he had swine flu after how cruddy he felt. tongue    No idea what he actually had for viral, but it is now turned bacterial infection (his jaw hurts and he is coughing as of Tuesday he is on antibiotics.  Fortunately i have not caught any of this that I know of yet !!!!! yeah
Dx'd '90 (emergency rupture), symptoms ignored long before that, '03 fistulas and bad flagyl reactions, B12 weekly, Pentasa [until I surrender to the bigger meds]
I'm riding on the escalator of life....

Was is a rapid test? I read that these rapid tests are not as accurate. See below.

Just curious.
