It's been a bumpy week. BOY came home with a bad headache on Wednesday, and by Wednesday night was vomiting. This continued into yesterday, he couldn't even keep down water. He had been complaining of a sore throat, but I didn't think too much of it since GIRL has a bad cold right now. Then he was actually lethargic, which if you know BOY could never be ascribed to him... His cheeks looked oddly flushed to me, so I checked his torso and he was developing a rash. So, I got him in to see the pediatrician yesterday and...it's strep. They had to give him an anti-nausea injection to stop the vomiting. Lovely. Poor little guy - a shot in the butt. I had to hold him down. Sometimes these things we have to do to keep our children healthy are exhausting... He was such a good sport. Last night he spiked a high temperature, but during the night things turned and he woke up his usual noisy self this morning. Thank GOD for antibiotics when we need them. His full energy isn't back quite yet, but he's definitely on the mend. Two nights of BOY in the bed with us + Momma & Poppa's worry = not much sleep for all. I'm hoping tonight will be restful....
