What illnesses are you seeing already?

  1. I've had 5 cases of Strep so far, 4 of pneumonia, and 2 cases of Fifth's...lots of runny noses and coughs as well. Three teachers went home sick on Friday with lost voice and fever. It's going to be a long Winter...

    Oh wow. Sorry to hear this. I am just having a random headache, belly ache. Not much yet. But the weather has been amazing here in good ole Missouri.

    I had a few kiddos with hand, foot, and mouth at the start of the year and a family that passed around strep, but right now it's mostly kids coming in in casts from weekend accidents! And the ever present cases of pretend illness!

    I have had quite a few strep cases, a few hand foot and mouth, and the usual stomach bugs.

    Strep, strep, and more strep. Then the usual headaches and stomachaches.

    1 strep so far. We just had a super rainy weekend, first time it rained that hard in a long time. Other than that we are still cooling off from a late summer. Who knows what will pop in today?

    STREP! Just cannot seem to get rid of it. And a couple HFM.

    Well, my sciatica has been flared up recently, and I am just getting over this darn cold.

    OOOOOooooohhhhh. You meant the students.

    I have seen lots of GI stuff this year. Big burly football players being brought to their knees by diarrhea. Legit vomiting. I have heard of a few cases of strep as well, but I haven't seen any of them in my office. Not technically an illness, but I have seen so. many. concussions.

    Word. And once again, the parents all agree the return to learn process trumps the return to play process...UNTIL it affects their #specialsnowflake whose only reason for living is athletics.
