1st day tomorrow...

The 1st day of school is tomorrow, and Stephen is sick! I can't believe it. He always has a hard time at the beginning of the new school year, and I knew starting middle school would be difficult for him. However, I'm sure this isn't just a "not wanting to go to school sickness." It's not just an "I don't feel good." or "My stomach hurts." He has a fever, is constantly coughing, plus a little bit of headache and dizziness. Last winter he had that virus that was mimicking strep, and it lasted almost a whole week. I am *so* hoping this isn't like that. I really want him to be able to start with the rest of the kids when they all are in the same boat about not knowing where to go, etc.

Please send him some get well prayers and vibes!

oh, no! Get well FAST vibes headed your way. Even if he feels lousy, as long as he doesn't have a fever, I would really encourage him to go tomorrow. Good luck!

Today's the 2nd day, and he's still home sick with me. His fever varies between normal and 102.1. I called the dr. yesterday, and they said there is a virus going around and they are just treating the cough and fever with OTC meds. It's lasting about 5 days. I'm really hoping he'll be able to go tomorrow, but it might still be too soon. Once the fever actually breaks, I'll let him go. Too bad it's his first days at a new school. Oh well, I told him he'd be the "celebrity" when he goes back.

Thanks for your well wishes.

Sorry he's still under the weather, what nasty timing. Hoping that mean old fever breaks so he can go tomorrow and get a bit settled before the long weekend. More ~~~~get well~~~~ vibes heading your way.

Best Always,

Poor thing! I bet the teachers and his friends will be attentive and anxious to help him out when he gets to school.

Hope he gets well soon!
