Ds1 is 6 and had a cough starting early last week. It got worse and worse and he ended up with a streaming cold since Saturday morning with tummy ache as well, various sore bits and coughed all night last night. He has had to have vaseline under his nose and we can't see the floor for tissues. He probably had about 6 hours of (interrupted) sleep last night, as he was up several times unable to sleep.
He's just waking up now, I can hear the cough.
Attendance wasn't great last year and HT is on our backs. So - do I send him in to infect all and sundry, thus destroying potentially 29 other attendance records...or keep him home and take the flack?
His little brother is already starting to feel poorly, so it's obviously catchable.
Thanks, his attendance was just several short bugs and so on. I was pretty careful to send him in if he was able to go. But they just kicked off about it at the end of the year. It was his first proper year at school so of course he got a dose of everything...
anyway he seemed MUCH better this morning, was jumping about on the sofa and all that so he's gone in. I think yesterday was his worst day.
I told his teacher to keep an eye, because it was PE first thing so she said if he was coughing she'd get him to have a rest. Poor thing...I didn't realise till afterwards that it was outdoor PE! But I think he'll be alright.
