No school for you!

Poor mini#1. STILL has this virus. This morning he couldn't even get out of bed when he sadly called for me at 6:45 a.m. When we checked his temperature it was 104.3! I was so scared. He said his arms and legs hurt. I nervously called the after hours nurse, but was assured it was because of the fever and not from some contracted disease I was creating in my mind. For an hour I sat on his bed, prayed, cried, and even climbed under his covers and waited for the Motrin to start its magic. Finally, an hour later, like the nurse had predicted, the fever was down to 101. It's been up hill since then. He's eaten and he's taken a long nap. After his nap I read to him and there's been no more fever. This is one NASTY virus. Leave my child alone already! It's scaring me a lot!

Well I hope everyone enjoyed this beautiful Spring day. I hate that we've been hidden inside all day while it was sunny and warm. At least I had a chance to read multiple catalogs and magazines. Just couldn't get to that ironing...maybe tonight.

Thanks for your comment...we do seem to have lots in common. I love your blog title, too. I hope mini#1 is better soon. It's amazing how quickly they get very sick, and then completely recover like nothing ever happened. Have a great day!

That is scary, I am glad he is on the mend. Thank goodness for Motrin. The best part is the snuggle time with them to make them feel better. Hopefully you will be outside enjoying the warm weather soon.

Those high fevers scare me to death! I'm always creating horrible "what if's" in my mind when they're sick like that.
You know, we just had the MRSA scare, and one of the first things I thought was, "Pink in a Sea of Blue was just talking about that! What if it's a sign!"
I'm completely nuts...

Thanks all for well wishes.

Belle- Oh, I was creating "what-if's" in my mind, too! I think all mothers are like that. So happy your son is ok now, too! Glad you got to sleep late, too!
