Little guy has been down and out since about Wednesday night. He was semi hot Tuesday night, but he sweats when he sleeps so I wasn't TOO concerned. Wednesday after school, he just wanted to lay on me on the couch so I knew something was up...so off to the doctor we went!
Even though his throat wasn't even red, they still have to test him for strep and the flu...which R is old enough now to know what they are about to do and it's NOT a pretty site! He actually had to be swabbed for strep twice. OMG. You would have thought I was taking away all of his toys! :( The sweet nurses brought him a popsicle and a gatorade...
We were given some antibiotics, inhaler and cough medicine and off we were...
Luckily I was out of school on Thursday for parent/teacher conferences so I kept R home with me. He wasn't running a fever...and he was even playing Dr. Ryder with me!
The next day was my last day to long term sub...which I was going to miss to stay home with him, but my mom offered to keep him for me so I wouldn't miss my last day with my kids. SO thankful! He continued to run fever with her all day...but they had a good day making forts and he took a long nap for her!
I gave him some gatorade when we got home, bathed him in an Epsom salt bath....and as soon he got out of the bath--he threw it all up. I felt so bad for this little guy!! What is a mom to do!? We finally made it back to the couch, and I told him he could go to sleep and that he needed to...he rolled over and was OUT!
Today was a snow/ice day for us so we sleep in...him longer than me and it's been a good day of recovery around here!
PHEW! Let's get back to normal life shall we!!
