Sick Days

Or, rather, sick daze.

Matthew has been sick for 4 days now. The fever was gone this morning, but the malaise is lingering. As is the coughing, the runny nose, and the headaches.

There has been a lot of lying in bed, lying in the couch, having something to drink and going back up to bed.

Matthew is a pretty decent sick kid. He doesn’t complain too much and he is pretty content to watch TV when he doesn’t have the energy for anything else.

The only down-side (aside from being sick, and the 4 am barf-fest) is that he has missed most of his week at school. He keeps asking to go.  Hopefully he’ll continue to improve this weekend so he can go back next week.

Our pediatrician is guessing that he has the H1N1 virus, based on symptoms and timing of the virus. There has been a lot in the press about the outbreak.

Matthew thinks it’s a bit overblown.

    Poor Matthew…Poor Elizabeth. Those are bittersweet memories of motherhood. Tender but so stressful. I hope he is top-of-the-world soon and that no one else in your house falls ill…especially you!
