Always sick...

Why is it that when I finally feel like we are over the sick baby thing Nathan decides to get sick again?  Does he have an internal clock that goes off after a few weeks telling him to lick another child that has a runny nose?  That must be it.

This time it was from going to my parent's house to visit.  My niece had a cold...I kissed her...didn't think about it and then I kissed my child.  It figures it is mommy's fault this time! 

My poor baby started a cough as soon as we returned home.  Then it was the sneezing and runny nose, which finally led to the dreaded 102.6 fever yesterday afternoon.  And wouldn't you know it was the day when I was at a meeting 40 minutes away instead of 5 minutes from daycare like I normally am!  So the kid had to rough it out for almost an hour while I packed up and drove to get him. 

He woke up this morning at 7:00 am with no fever and happy.  I figure "yay he is getting over it!"  Wrong thought to have just jinxed yourself!  I come downstairs two hours later after taking my final exam to find the poor boy with another high fever. 

Now he is sleeping off the fever with some Ibuprofen.  I really hope he gets better soon...especially because it is going to be in the 50's to 60's this week!  I can't have us miss an opportunity to go out walking after work those days!

I hope everyone else and their children are having better luck than us this winter!  Only a few more weeks to go!  Fingers crossed!


  1. I'm so sorry to hear your son is not feeling well! I hope he gets well soon!

  2. Thank you! He is ok with Ibuprofen but as soon as it wears off it is like the end of the world for him! But he seems a bit more like himself today...he even ate a waffle this morning!
