#Microblog Mondays 18: Sick Child Edition

I'm posting super late because I was home with a sick AJ all day.  Both he and MJ have had an upper respiratory virus that seems to have hit AJ harder.  MJ got sick first, coughing at night starting two nights before Chr.istm.as, and continuing to have an occasional cough and nasal congestion through yesterday.  MJ is pretty much over whatever this is now.

AJ started getting ill a couple of days ago, and in addition to those symptoms, he has run a near-constant fever for over two days (despite regular dosing with alternating Tylenol and Motrin), and his cough has been more severe than MJ's.  He has had very low energy, and his day care doesn't permit children with a fever to attend.

Because work is not particularly busy for me at the moment, and because the prospect of staying home from day care today with either MM or my mother brought him to tears, I spent the day at home with him.  He was cranky, restless and clingy, poor lamb.

And that pretty much sums up my Monday.

  1. Poor baby! My 3year old had something similar: three or four days of fever, draggy, and a chunky cough that lasted for weeks! It was brutal.

  2. Sorry that he's sick... and that you as a result had to deal with it. I hope he's feeling better today.
