She was sent home from school with a fever, headache and vomiting on Tuesday. Was on the mend Wednesday although still coughing. This morning she has no fever and feels "fine", but she still has a bit of a cough and I've just felt her neck and her lymph nodes are massively swollen.

I'm asking the mn jury as I think I should keep her home, dh will send her off without a thought to it. I'm curious if I am being particularly pfb.

I would for another day to get over it. I send mine in with all sorts of coughs and colds but sometimes with these virusy things if you go back too early it just comes back again.

Actually with vomiting our school has a 48 hour rule anyway.
