No, we don't do Disney's Snow White here.
I just have Matthew home, as he is coughing, sneezing and has a runny nose. No fever. But there is the swine flu paranoia, so we were advised to take him to the ped, and to keep him home from school.
Since Matthew tends to sneeze and cough himself through the winter/rainy season, this shall be an interesting school year, especially if he misses school neither Kevin nor I master the language enough to actually help him with school work. Plus, due to the ear situation--another surgery scheduled in the beginning of December--he will miss school for really being sick.
Before anyone suggests giving him anti cold medicine, no, that's not going to happen. There are a myriad of reasons for that, not the least is that they don't seem to work for him.
Right now Mr. Sneezy is making peanutbutter cookies at his Aunt's. At least his brothers will benefit from having to keep Matthew home.
