There is a case now here in a suburb just outside the city where I live, same county. And one in Nashville at a private school that is tied in to a private school here with the same name, and there are supposedly more sick with a flu type illness at that same school. The case here is in a private school also. It has been shut down for a week. I have enough issues already, I don't need that. Everyone make sure you wash your hands regularly. I also use the hand sanitizer also, and every day.
Who is you GI if you don't mind me prying. I am assuming you're in Nashville? Mine is Dr. Schwartz at vandy's IBD clinic.
Dr-A, I see Dr. Daniel Griffin with the Gastroenterology Center of the Midsouth. I am actually here in Memphis but my daughter-in-law actually lives in Clarksville and I was watching the local news today and saw the news about the possible case here in Memphis and heard about the case in Nashville this morning. The Harding Academy there in Nashville is supposedly tied in to the Harding Academy here in Memphis.
