9-2-11: What’s Going Around?

Well back to school has brought lots of illness to our children. Yesterday and today, we had record numbers of ill children. Most of what we are seeing involves sore throats, aches and pains, stomach pains, some vomiting and diarrhea, headaches and dizziness. Some have been Strep Throat and most have been viral.

Doesn’t happen often, but one of my friends must have shared with me. I started feeling very dizzy – almost vertigo – around noon today. Followed up with stomach upset … but nothing that some ibuprofen didn’t fix. Able to finish the day seeing all my little friends. I’m taking it easy tonight, even gave up the gym, to rest up. Don’t have a day off till next Saturday.

Have a great Labor Day Weekend to all my patients and their families! Please be safe and healthy!
