    I was out Thursday with a migraine, then some viral thing with a fever of 101 on Friday . I'm still sick today, but feeling better and my fever is barely 99. Hopefully I can go back Monday.

    One of the colleges close to our school has had 40 confirmed cases of H1N1 flu. The student teacher in my classroom goes to that college and lives in student housing.

    I'm praying heavily that it doesn't come into our school via her. She seems really healthy, but she knows that if she even has a stuffy nose, she needs to stay home.

    Me, too, with the migraine... I think it's just the stress of starting back to school.

    I have one child in my class with that flu. So far no one else is showing symptoms. He had been picked up early (not because he was sick) the day before he became sick so, hopefully, we haven't been exposed.

    I got my first head cold on Friday (day 4 of school). On the first day, a kid went home sick at lunchtime and found out he had influenza A.

    Influenza A? Isn't early for the regular flu? I thought those A and B strains didn't start until November or December at the earliest! That's why they vacinate in November! Gee, another flu to worry about! :(

    I have a possible case in my classroom... Have my fingers crossed it isn't.

    I have felt pretty icky most of the day- my throat hurts and I feel weak. No fever (at least I don't think so).

    I woke up with a sore throat and stuffy nose. I hope it is just allergies and drainage!

    I'm sick and my son is sick too... It's his second cold after going back to daycare. I have a sore throat and congestion but no runny nose or anything. I often get this way when it starts to get cold again. Or at least go from summer to fall.

    THIRD day of school and I'm SICK! I am thinking it may be allergies, but still...sick is sick. I usually get allergies to some degree around this time of year. I am still going in tomorrow in case it escalates later in the week to the point where I will have to take off.

    Well wishes to everyone else! :dizzy::dizzy:
