Afraid to ask but... are the kids over this bout of sickness?

Right before Christmas break I felt like EVERYONE was sick... flu, colds, stomach bugs, etc.

I was hoping to escape it during school, DS did and is still healthy even seeing a ton of people this week.

Did everyone's illness run its course now that back to school is looming?

DD has just recovered. DS came down with the flu 2 days ago, so... no.

We got slammed this vacation. DD got the virus the night before Christmas eve. DS got it the day after Christmas. DD is on the mend but still has the lingering cough. My friend's kids also had the same thing over break. I'm afraid it't still going around.

This is why I was afraid to ask. Well, I guess it comes with the territory of winter. Chat Icon I hope all of your LOs feel better!

I was at the ped today-- for a recheck on the nasty chest cough my younger one had last week. I have never, ever seen it so packed. At least I was in the well waiting room, I could hear the separate sick waiting room and it sounded like a government quarantine facility.

I feel like I'm back with a toddler who had monthly ear infections until I gave him a probiotic.

For the most part they seem to be over it. But because of missing weeks of school with virus after virus, I'm going to give some acidophilus to give them a boost.

were JUST almost fully recovered. I am a teacher and agree EVERYONE was sick. So many teachers were sick we didn't even have enough subs to cover classes. And the crazy thing is normally its like one things that spreads. This was everything from strep and colds to the stomach virus. I have no sick days left so I hope my kids get sick on weekends from now on LOL

Ugh, this has been a rough vacation! DD threw up 6 times Saturday night, so a quick visit to PM Peds revealed an ear infection.

Every family we know - at least 1child has been sick this vacation.

My BFF just texted me from the PM Peds in Medford and said it is packed! Pretty much standing-room only at this point.

We were doing okay but then DD started with a headache and low fever on Sunday and sore throat Monday. Took her to the ped confirmed strep. She actually isn't that sick but can't shake the low fever. Knock on wood the rest of us are strep free so far.
