I am just curious how you know?
So far, if we caught anything from our child that was a VPD, I guess it could have been Rotavirus, but I don't know for sure. I am somewhat expecting to get whooping cough because I have heard of so many cases around us recently. I don't know if my immunity to that would have worn off from the vaccine or if I ever had the WC vaccine.
It has a smell unlike anything else on this earth. Probably the nastiest smell I've ever dealt with, at least in normal daily life.
My family passes colds around to each other (like the one we ALL got, all at the same time, the other day and are still dealing with this weekend). Generally it comes from hubby's workplace and I'll come down with it first, but hubby generally gets it last. We call him a Typhoid Mary. Other times it's when DS and I go to the Children's Museum or another kid-focused place, and usually he'll get it first then. This time we're just mystified what hit us.
