My parents were sending me back to school with my 104 degree fever...after being home for a month wiht MONO 2.

My mum would have been fast friends with yours.
Though she did have a rule that fever was the one ticket out of school.
And then she'd tell us stories about how when she was little she would put the thermometer next to a hot light to get out of school.

I had something that I took while growing up that we called "Green Medicine." It was a liquid antihistamine. I loved my green medicine. Turns out they banned it later because it had some kind of cocaine in it. :rofl:;)

Could it have been paragoric or donnotal by any chsnce??

Good grief I got sent to school with mono too. And I had to walk home half asleep, and carrying 10 lbs of books. We didn’t have backpacks back then.
