DD2 is due to go away with School tomorrow until Friday evening - they are going to France.

Now here is my problem!

We as a family returned from France 10 days ago. Since returning from France, DD2 had an awful tummy ache, she spent most of the day in the loo (just over a week ago), crying it hurt that much. - She then got over it. Couple of days later DD3 came home in a right old state from School. She had had wet blow offs all day and numerous "poos" (she had even {Sorry TMI} stained her school dress.sad. That night that DD3 had not been right, I too was rough. (I still am having problems - a week later)
On Sunday DH started to moan about his tummy not being right.

Tonight DD1 has started to complainsad.

We have all shown the same symptoms except DD2.

Although DD2 has had some sort of trouble, its not like ours.

I am now really worried about her going away with School (not going to France).

The reason why I am really worried is:-

DD1 went to France with School a few years back and was really poorly (apparently we had all caught the cryptospiridium (sp) bug from DD2 party.) It was actually diagnosed through the environmental health what we all had had it!sad

What will the School say if I turn up tomorrow and say " oh by the way, i am expecting DD2 to be ill" Etc etc

I am very tempted not to send her, although in my heart, I know I could not do that too her!

Would you mention this to her teacher tomorrow, or should I just wait and see, and let her get on with it.

The tummy pains etc are very like the cryptospirium that we had a few years ago!sad Although this time none of us have been sick!

Thanks for listening

Very worried here. Especially that DH is away tonight and he doesn't know that DD1 is now feeling.........!sad

Oh dear!

I would let her go and keep my fingers crossed!

pinkbubble Tue 09-Sep-08 23:03:56

Kittywise would you say anything to the Teachers? I do know them well as I actually work at the school!

Just a bit worried that its going to be a repeat of DD1 trip!

I would give her till the morning till you make a decision - if she seems ok, send her.

So far so good! Thats the trouble. None of us have lost appetite or been ill. Just terrible tummy ache and then ......... !blush

Do not want to put her in that position!

yes id see how she is in the morning.

id have to mention the tummy ache but not the wet blow offs grin just in case and pack plenty of knickers just in case!!!

pinkbubble Tue 09-Sep-08 23:13:56

Think I will mention it. Would feel awful if its a repeat session when DD1 went to France with themsad Although we had no idea that she had been ill and we were not ill until half way through her time away!

Just feel its a bit de ja vu! (sp)

Still have another DD to send to France in a couple of years - think they will ban the "Bubbles!"wink

I would send her as I think she has got over what ever it is already but not before passing it on to her sister first!

pinkbubble Tue 09-Sep-08 23:19:21

Thats just it Cargirl, do not think its that kind of bug at all.

more like dirty swimming pool etc sad

Just really worried in case that was not what was wrong with her in the first place and she still has it to come!

DD2 is my "dainty" DD, she normally gets everything twice as bad as everyone else sad
