I knew we were pushing our luck. We had a good stretch of several months without any major illnesses in the house. That came to an abrupt end about 2:30 am today, when Jordan woke up screaming. I checked in on him, calmed him down, and went back to bed. At 5:00 am, he woke again, burning with fever.
And so it begins again. Time will tell what direction this bug takes. At 5:00 in the morning, all he wanted to do was crawl into bed with us, which was a very unusual request. But we acquiesced.
Although he had to miss out on Easter dinner at Uncle Ciccio's house, Monkey did not let a fever and runny nose stop him from dressing up today. Cat ears are such an underutilized accessory these days.
Feeling inspired, the Monkey bursts into a round of "Memory."
By the end of the day, niceties like using a kleenex no longer mattered so much.
We did enjoy reading our Easter cards ... and our four different beverages for dinner.
But by 7:00 pm..we were so done. It's a safe guess that he's sick when he's screaming to go to bed. Looks like school is out of the question tomorrow. I'm really hoping he'll kick this one fast, but from past experience, I doubt it.
