It's a virus

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.

Oh, your poor boy. Being ill is not the nicest way to spend the holiday season, is it? Anyway, I hope he gets better soon. Take care - and season's greetings to you!

Oh no! Being sick on Christmas Eve is the worst! Last year I woke up on 12/24 afraid I would start coughing up blood. It was so painful.

And I'd be excited about eating ramen, too! I can;t get enough of it!!!

Hope The Boy is feeling better soon!

Oh, and also, I didn't mean to be presumptuous with the Christmas Eve thing. Holiday time in general is a bad time to be ill--it's just that I was sick the same day last year (and had to fly ill) and it was AWFUL.

The only good thing about being sick is eating the stuff you're not usually allowed. I hope it makes/made him feel better.

Wishing you seasons greetings from Michele

Hope he feels better soon. I am still half-dead with this sinus stuff, and yet...I stayed up all night whelping puppies night before last--while Alex SLEPT; And stayed up half the night last night--while Alex SLEPT. I think that's why the song goes "Peace on Earth, good will to MEN."

What's he doing now, you ask? Guess.
