On Monday David called me at school around 9:30 and told me he was running a fever and needed to be taken to the doctor. I made arrangements with my principal to leave work early and rushed home to help him. I took him to Stanford Medical Center where he was tested for strep throat and the swine flu. Due to the outbreak they almost quarantined David in the medical center; however, when then found out we lived off campus we were free to go home. The test results took 24 hours to develop so I told my boss I would be taking Tuesday off too . Both test were negative, but luckily David's symptoms went away on their own. It must have been a nasty virus. I'm glad he is okay and I also got two days off school.
