Update and Question

I posted about triamenic strips the other day and I took my son to the dr cuz his cough was getting worse by the min. They diagnosed him with pneumonia. :( He is now on albuterol and antibiotics. Is he contagious? I teach the toddler sunday school class and he is usually in the class with me. I don't want to make the other kiddos sick.

  • No, I don't think so but I could be wrong.

  • The virus that started the pneumonia is contagious (like a cold or influenaza)... but you can't "catch" pneumonia

  • Since he is ill, for his sake he shouldn't be around others. Even if he is on the mend, his resistance will be down and he shouldn't be exposed to other people.
