Leaving tomorrow with sick kid
Fri, 05-02-2003 - 5:00pm
It is what every parent dreads, that the kid or kids get sick right before or on vacation. Ben got sick Tuesday and Wednesday and I thought that was it. NO!

Now Peter is sick with the same thing - a viral infection. He has been throwing up, has a sore throat, has a headache and a temp. of 104. I took him to the doctors but of cause there is nothing they can do for a viral infection, although they did do a blood test to comfirm that it was viral and not bacterial. So for the rest of the day he is on liquids only and some tylenol for the fever. Tomorrow he should be feeling a bit better and can try some light foods. Hopefully he will be almost completely better by the time we arrive in FL on Sunday (it is a 2 day drive for us).

Now I just have to keep my fingers crossed that hubby and I don't come down with the bug. Especially hubby as we know how much sicker than anyone else they get.
