He’s been down with fever since Saturday and today’s Thursday. After all the medication failed, we decided to bring him to the paed again. This time we were referred to the hospital to take a swab test for H1N1.
So we headed down to TMC (Tropicana Medical Centre) and took the swab test. 45 minutes later the result came out. Ethan was sleeping in my arms when Darling came back with the result – positive for Influenza A. I almost fainted. I cried. We were told to take another test; a confirmative test for H1N1. The result will be out in 24 hours. 
For the time being, Ethan is on Tamilflu. He’s weak and I’m lost…

    Hi, 1st time leaving comment here. Don't worry, A lot of these cases these days. My friend's kids were diagnosed with H1N1, one after another last month. Heard that the ward at Columbia Asia Hospital (Puchong) was full, they had to go to Sunway which was also almost full. They were discharged after fever subsided.
