This morning the Boy got up and he was feeling even worse. He was so dizzy he almost passed out and he got a nosebleed, which lead to uber drama and complete panic. He doesn't do well with illness, but blood is way over the top for him. He was close to hysterics, but I got him calmed down, cleaned up, and then called the doctor.
We hightailed it to the pediatrician this morning for a strep test. Negative, baruch haShem. But he's got this weird virus that's going around. The doctor said that the dizziness is part of the drama of this virus, and that his blood pressure is really low, so she recommended eating salty foods and drinking a lot to keep hydrated. The Boy was so excited because this meant he had permission to eat Ramen, something I don't usually allow due to the ridiculous salt content. So we stopped on the way home and got him a box of Pringles, some Gatorade, and 4 packages of Ramen. Now life seems better.
I've got a vicious headache, though. Stumble It! JBlog Me
