Who had the over/under on 0838?

Epigastric stomach ache after not eating breakfast. Did not need to poop. Resolved with crackers, nurse water, and sympathy.

I require a prescription for sympathy in my office.

It cures a variety of things. In the high school I had filtered water in a Brita pitcher and it was COLD nurse water. Here, the filter's on the tap so it's... cool-ish nurse water. But it still works!

I want to play, even though I'm late to the party!  My assistant and I were placing bets on who would be first, and how long they had been sick.  I'm in a high school, and school starts at 7:16.  Our first visitor was at 8:13, for a student who had been having cold symptoms for a week.  This student was taking meds at home, and doing everything correctly.  I took a temp, and sent them back to class.

We've got weeks to go before Spring Break.    I'll likely see a build up of visits prior to rather than right after.

I am now seeing the result of going somewhere for spring break and then returning. The viral illnesses contracted from near and far are making a lovely stew...
