Here in Tennessee.
My household consists of 5.
This bug as most of you mention is a two hitter. It comes back! Sore throat, stomach upset (diarrhea or vomiting sometimes both at the same time). I
thought it was either strep or mono. My kids had it two weeks to a MONTH!
Yes, the winter has been extremely mild so it doesn't surprise me in the least. What concerns me is the length of time the kids were sick. White
count was high a couple of days ( I ALWAYS get the kids blood checked) monocytes a little high and also BUN was a little high.
Im the type of person who wants a diagnosis. I am not into taking antibiotics unless I HAVE TO!
It has been a crazy last couple of months... we all had it but I didn't get it as severe as the rest of the household.
