Is there something goin around?

So just in the past two weeks two of my friends here have been sick, my son woke up this morning sick, my husband was sick two days ago and several people at work have called in sick this week. Today we were down seven people!

Is there something going around?

  • yep, there sure is... either a person i know or someone they know is sick or just got over being sick, or is coming down... i didn't feel to good for about a week, but it was just stuffed runny nose and a cough

  • My son started sniffling and coughing a couple days ago. Then my middle daughter was complaining of a stuffy nose. My son's cough turned into a sore throat on Friday...the last day of school. He came home looking miserable and asked, "why do I have to get sick on the first day of summer vacation?" He's 7 1/2. He seems okay but now has laryngitis. You can barely hear him when he talks. And whatever he has he gave it to me because I'm feeling warn down and cruddy now. Won't be long before all the kids are sick. Grrr.

  • It's been going around in our home, too, for the past two weeks.
    It drains us of a lot of energy for sure.

    I hope everyone feels well soon.
