If you're doing the antibiotic thing, may I recommend Culturelle or some other probiotic?

Good advice. My wife is taking care of that. (I don't know if she's using Culturelle, but she is giving them a probiotic.)

Even though I have 3 kids on antibiotics, I don't really have any sick kids. As I mentioned before, one of the kids who tested positive had no symptoms at all, and the others are very mild.

One good thing about modern antibiotics: They only need two doses a day, instead of the 4 daily doses we had when I was young.
