Now every parent, every mother, knows that when your child is sick you are just as sick or even more sick than they are. My daughter has had a fever since yesterday and had to stay home from school. My husband took the day from work to stay with her so today I decided on staying. Then he called about mid morning to say that my son’s school had just called him to inform him that my son had a fever as well and had to be taken home. Yup, they were both sick and at home today.
They basically spent the whole day sleeping, with minimum intake of food because they had no taste for it. But, of course, I made sure to give them lots of fluids to ensure they remained hydrated. And tried as much as possible to sneak in some food here and there so that they got to eat something throughout the day.
I also took the opportunity, being at home, to get some much needed packing up done in my daughter’s room. Her window that was broken since the hurricane was finally back to some form of “normal”. There were no windows on island so my husband decided on a temporary fix using glass, which actually looks just as if a brand new window was installed.
Today I took the time to move a few things back into her room and pretty much moved her back into her own space. She had been renting from another room for a while and needed her own space again. So her space is now all “girled” up again and she loves it.
So, needless to say, today was a tough day. I feel a bit tired but I also feel like I was able to accomplish some of the things I put off last weekend. Doing the moving around and “heavy” lifting is usually more difficult on a week-end because I am already so exhausted after a week of work so today was a welcomed day – not in the best of circumstances, but welcomed anyway.
The cuties are feeling a little better tonight. Still a bit warm and a bit stuffy in the nose but better. We will continue to monitor their progress and see what happens next.
