My friend is 8 months pregnant and has the flu as does her

This answer was rated:

My friend is 8 months pregnant and has the flu as does her 22 month old daughter. Today the pediatrician gave her daughter an antibiotic but Holly needs some help at home until she is feeling better. Any ideas? They live in Awandaw, S.C.
If she has the flu and is 8 months she needs to be taking Tamiflu now - this is dangerous not to be treated as this is putting her life in danger as is the unborn fetus. I would recommend that she go to the nearest labor and delivery unit (where she plans on delivering).
