Re: We have the flu and Im delivering via CS in 5 days!HELP!

((hugs)). DH and I didn't have the flu during my 4th baby's c-section, but we had colds. Coughing and runny noses, etc. The doc was able to give me meds that dried me up and I didn't have any cough spells after the c-section. We tried to be the most careful we could be, but then with coming home and the other kids having colds too... baby girl got her first cold at like 1-1/2 weeks old. Then she had one for the rest of cold/flu season, it seemed like! The price of having older siblings... My youngest brother (the 7th) got the chicken pox at 1 week old (he did splendidly, thankfully).
ANyway, definitely call the doc and get his/her thoughts. I would say no to the sibings visiting at the hospital (but yes to dh! maybe with a mask?). Stay as long as you can at the hospital before coming home to give yourself more time to heal up and also to give the house more time to get clean and air out.

So sorry this has happened!
