Still Sick


Noah is still under the weather. He did eat breakfast this morning. Asked for noodles with Applesauce. Hmmm . . . I asked if he meant spaghetti and he said yes. He did eat well and things are staying down. This is the first time he has asked for food in a couple days. He has been asking for water, thankfully. He has spend a LOT of time watching TV--NickJr (formerly Noggin) is our pick. He is good for a while and then falls asleep again.

Yesterday, he fell asleep around 10:30 am and woke at 2:30 pm. I had planned to allow him to go to preschool but he slept right through it. Then when he woke and found out it was over, he pouted and then cried for about half an hour. Poor kid really did want to go.

I will go in to work 2 hours late so that Keith can come home and watch him. I've been feeling fatigued and coughing myself this week but nothing like Noah has.

We did not take him to the Doctor because we did not feel that he was in bad enough condition to warrent it. He was drinking, taking meds, resting and eating small amounts. His fever was under control. Unfortunately, the docs can't do much for the flu except to keep the kids hydrated and he was not dehydrated. Thank God and those who have prayed him through this.

Hope you all get better. We have had sickness here as well but not as bad as poor Noah. Happy Thanksgiving friend!

Poor little guy! I hope he continues to feel better! My son had the flu last week. Thankfully he bounced back after 5 days.

Hope little Noah is on the mend. This bug is really knocking folks for a loop! Praying for your family to feel better soon!

We are praying for all of you!! This flu bug (whatever it is) is not fun!! In so many ways, I believe it is God "forcing" us to stop, slow down and rest!! When the boys were sick w/it. We napped daily, stayed in our jammies for hours and played games; things we should do more often! Kiss one of my favorite boys and let him know that we love him! Heather
