Towards the end of the day on Friday Isaak didn't look very good. When I got home he was extra grumpy. Travis said, "Isaak stop milking it. Why do you have to act this way when Mom gets home?" He was acting that way because he was starting to spike a fever.
On Saturday he lost his fever, but slept much of the day. I thought about taking him in Saturday morning, but his fever was gone.
On Sunday he woke up his chipper self.
On Monday he woke up saying, "I'm totally normal. I don't feel sick at all." We sent him to school. Then I got a call saying, "Isaak's in the nurses office. He has a fever of 101.3." I went to pick him up, and put a call into the doctor. It took them an hour to get back to me. That's when I know they are busy. We couldn't get in until 4:50. Their office was buzzing with sickness.
Isaak's favorites when he's sick:
- Drinking JELL-O juice - JELL-O not set up to drink
- I usually add a vitamin C packet to his JELL-O Juice and additional water.
- Watching movies
- Laying on the couch
- He didn't mind reading
Isaak tested positive at the doctor's office for strep throat. There have been a lot of sicknesses around my work to.
I love the boy's doctor. As soon as he walked in he checked out Mica just to be sure. Then he said, "If Mica shows any signs just call us, and I'll write a script in. There's no need to come all the out here again."
The scary thing was when Isaak would wake up from bad dreams when he had a fever.
Scary Dream 1:
"Oh shit! Oh Shit! Oh shit!" Over and over again. "Mom stop making me climb the walls! I don't want to go on the ceiling!" All while his boiling hot body was trying to slither out of my hands.
I wasn't about to have the, "You shouldn't cuss like that Isaak." conversation.
Scary Dream 2:
"Oh my God! Oh my God" Over and over again. "They are trying to bite me! Stop the alligators!" I held him, while Travis got his Motrin. Isaak, "Mom can't you see them. The alligators are on the ceiling!"
Are there any bad sicknesses floating around where you live?
