Sickie Bug

Whew i found another moment to log whats been going in our lives!

Tracs-for all those who know but don't know
I feel extremely busy right now in our lives, on top of everything normal we are doing i had finals this week and wouldn't you know it the bug gets sick! This is the first time he has been sickie.  On Sunday he was congested when he came home from Grandpa's, and cousin J was there, she had a fever so they were both under the weather. Cute thing was the Bug wanted to play and J was laying lifeless with her fever watching a movie and the bug goes over to her puts his hand on her forehead and gives her a kiss on her forehead then goes away.  Every time he came in the room where she was laying down he did this.  SO CUTE!

So Sunday we were congested, and we went about or normal routine.  Then at 11pm he walks out of his room sweating buckets! Temperature of 103 came to visit.  i got it down to 98 pretty quick when i called grandpa to see if he could watch the bug so i didn't have to send him to school.  Grandpa said yes and wanted to have the bug over night so i took him over there with medicine wrapped up like a piggy in a blanket. The night was good the bug was just congested a bit, and the next day was Halloween so we were looking forward to going trick or treating with cousin j and seeing JD ..but none of that happened.

We stayed home and handed out tracs with grandpa.  The Bug was so cute, he couldn't say trick or treat but he could make his voice go up and down in sounds like he was saying trick or treat and he put a bag of candy and a trac in all the kids bags. He got to the point he saw the kids walking up the drive way and he would stand in the door way and wave the bag of candy like here it is come and get it!

As soon as the last trick or treater left the house...BLEH the bug threw up all over me!  I froze, i didn't want to run and make a trail or throw up and i didn't want him to feel scared because it was his first time throwing up thats got to be traumatizing all in itself.  The mean while my dad is yelling in the background "take him to the toilet, move move move".  Did not help the situation at all.  I ended up leaving him at grandpa's for two days, then taking him to the doctor on the third day.
Never seen a chamber with cool cartoon instructions

We came to the conclusion that he was congested and wheezing, which made it harder for his body to breath and ended up making him sick.  SO we know have a cough medicine hat has a nausea suppressant and an inhaler with an aero chamber.  Things seem to be better, but now is the time where when he is better we have to keep a close on eye on him, to see if this is going to be something that occurs when the seasons change or if it is something that might be a chronic problem with his health.
