To the Editor:
I’m writing this letter to let you know of a concern of mine. I’ve been sick for five days. I’m nine years old, and I’ve missed three days of school and I still don’t feel well. I have a fever that hangs around 102 degrees, my throat hurts, my stomach is upset and I’m cold.
I’m worried that others might catch it and also that it will take me a long time to get better. I’ve been drinking plenty of water, taking Motrin and Tylenol and getting lots of of rest.
People should wash their hands after using the bathroom or coming into contact with others who are sick, to avoid getting sick themselves.
