Poor Baby

Normal T Sick T

So I started feeling a little sick a few days ago. Nothing too terrible, just a bit off. I have since developed a cough and congestion. However, what I did not expect was that little man would get it with such intensity. We went to library story time yesterday and he would not take his hand off of me. Literally. Then we came home to play with a friend, and he just sat next to me on the couch until he got super warm (101 degree fever) and fell asleep sitting up next to me at 12:00 noon. What!? This little boy does not fall asleep easily these days (we're talking 20 minute nap drives at 2 p.m.), so this was rather strange. After a nap, some tylenol, and Cars, he somewhat resembled himself. I was getting lots of extra snuggles though which I promptly soaked up. He whined for me to hold him around 7 last night and again fell asleep in my arms.   

This lethargy caught J and I by surprise. it was like a flashback to a year ago during his "parasite-ridden-hacking-cough-staph-infection days." This morning he didn't get out of bed until 8 a.m. (don't worry, B made sure to keep our 5 a.m. wake-up intact.)  J picked him up at out of bed and he literally collapsed in his arms. He stayed on the couch all morning except for when he tried to come to me in the kitchen and stood up, only to lay down on the ground face down next to the couch until I came over to get him up. This was the saddest! At this point I called the Dr. who said to come on in. He slept on the couch until we got there where she told us it is probably just a virus and to keep him drinking fluids. He kept saying, "I wanna go bye-bye, Mama!" while we were there. But after a popsicle on the stroller ride home he managed to tell me, "Thank you for Dr., Mama." Sweet little boy. He hasn't been himself, but he has been feistier this afternoon so hopefully he is on the mend. It is so sad to see him feeling so terrible. I sure love that precious little boy.... And I love his sister who is now a little feverish as well, but seems to be acting normally. This was much to her brother's chagrin, as she kept singing, "If you're happy and you know it shout hooray!" in his face today and regaled him with countless tales about taking her baby to the doctor - hey, a captive audience is a captive audience! :)
