Our school district has had confirmed cases of swine flu for the last week. Monkey’s school now has confirmed cases of swine flu. Today, Monkey had diarrhea so the nurse wants him to stay home from school tomorrow. I do sort of wish he’d had it at home, though I know for a fact Duhdee is thrilled he didn’t have to clean it up, so we could have seen it for ourselves. Loose stools in FX are common, Monkey has struggled with it in the past…I wonder if the school nurse is aware of that fact. Probably not, eh? Duhdee couldn’t tell if he had a temperature because he’d just come in from the playground and the 80+ degree heat.
Ah, well…we’ll watch him for other symptoms. I know Monkey doesn’t mind starting the long weekend early…let’s just hope he’s not truly sick.
**Edited to add** He seems fine. We’ll load him up on fiber and hopefully send him back to school next Tuesday with the BM issue resolved.
***Edited again to add*** He is fine. He’s home with Duhdee playing in the yard.
