His Smile Is Gone
My baby is sick, gone is his smile and the sound of his laughter. Replaced by a cough that won't go away and now we are experiencing eruptions from both ends!! You know that is ALWAYS fun. Jumping at every coughing spell trying to be fast enough to catch whatever happens to come flying out. So today I predict he will spend the day in bed watching whatever movie or television show that seems to capture his attention. Occasionally playing with his cars and I will spend the day worrying about him and begging him to eat something and questioning if I am making the right decision.
I panic some when my kids are sick especially if a fever is involved. I know it is all a part of life and most would be annoyed that their child is sick and how that throws a wrench in their day. I stress out not because I won't get things done but in my eyes that I've done something wrong. I was not paying attention, distracted by something unimportant and now because of that lack in care my child is sick.
~*BACK FROM THE DOCTOR'S OFFICE*~
Well I spent 3 and a 1/2 hours at the doctors office trying to get him seen. We ended up going to another doctors office on the other side of town where he was finally seen. He has a horrible virus and is mildly dehydrated. If he gets worse we will need to take him to Children's Hospital for IV and observation. He has had a cough for over a week and a 1/2 and caught this virus on top of the cough. I am so sad for my little guy I hope it doesn't last as long as the doctor predicted it would!!
So I am going to bust out my BIG BOTTLE of Lysol and wash all the bed linens, towels, and laundry. My home is a battlefield and this bug my baby's got is going to DOWN!!
