Did you speak to a 'human being'?
As you can see, all I have is a load of gobble-de-gook writing

Question Advice Please..........

I have just had a phone call from Dd8 school to say they have a Confirmed Case of Swine Flu .
Now the advice i would like please is this----
Would you keep your child off school for the remainder of term time(DD8 breaks up 17th July)now knowing this information??.
Also would you keep a sibling off in the school next door that shares sports halls etc...(Dd4 goes to the Nursery next door).
I know to some i may sound a little OTT ,but swine Flu does worry me,i know all the ins+outs of it+that it's not as bad as everyday flu,but i would just like some advice as to whether you would keep your child home.I know it may sound silly but could you give me reasons for your answer ?.
(also Dd8 friend,was sent home about an hour before we had this phone call-with temperature+shivers,his brother 4yrs is my Dd4 friend in Nursery-so we are with each other 2 times a day,Mon-Fri).
Thank you.x.

Edited Too Add(because of what Wendy said in her post)--i have mild asthma,suffer with chest infections+have recently been having a few dizzy spells-to do with my blood pressure,Dd8 has trouble controlling her temperature+it can cause her to pass out or in extreme cases, have a convulsion-although she has NOT been diagnosed with fits/epilepsy.No holidays.x.

If you have got a family holiday due in the next few weeks or any of your family has other conditions asthma/heart conditions etc then yes I would keep them off school if not I think I would keep them in school.

I would have said keep them in school however, reading your edit I would be inclined to speak to your GP.

Good luck

I think I would speak to your GP and see what he recommends. I know that with asthma you will be at higher risk. If you do keep her off school she isn't really going to miss much work wise it will just be the fun stuff, ie possible school trips etc.
