Double whammy...

Poor Co'b... it all started yesterday when he got home from school. Something made him upset (something small) and the pitiful little thing just burst into tears. I went to calm him down and noticed that he was warm and he said he felt bad.

Fast forward to 3:45am, I woke up to the little guy in our bathroom (just peeing ;) I went to check on him and placed my hand on his shoulder and he was BURNING UP! I ran to get the thermometer and his temp was 103.2 !!!! We gave him Motrin and a bath. The fever broke.

Again... fast forward... 8:32am started calling doctors office... BUSY...BUSY... around 9:20am finally got through and waited a good 15mins on hold... and then was told that they were booked and the earliest would be 3:20pm. Fine.

3:20pm.... arrive... and by 4pm we were on our way to the pharmacy with a prescription for an antibiotic for the Strep throat and a prescription of Tamiflu for his flu.

That's right.... STREP THROAT AND THE FLU!!!! After a bit of running around to get both filled (Walgreen's didn't have the Tamiflu so I had to make a few calls and luckily Safeway saved the day and was able to fill it)... picked up more fever reducer... and a stop by Hi Health for more colloidal silver (that's for the rest of us)... and a few extras to make him feel loved.

Lysol has been sprayed pretty much every square footage of the house (thanks Mario), sheets washed, and I just couldn't stop... even the floor got scrubbed!!!

Say a prayer for the little guy, he looks and feels 'poor pitiful'!!!

He was to go in on Tuesday to finish up his dental work (we have waited a while for this appointment) and I am afraid that we will have to postpone the procedure until later. Oh well who cares, right?

take care.... I'm going to go and cuddle the sick patient.

My poor, poor baby boy....thank heavens he has such loving parents. Will be calling today for sure, in fact have wanted to call for days now but that time difference is such a mess...didn't think you'd want a 3:00 a.m. call!

May God bless and watch over all of you and I pray that no one else gets sick.

love and comforting hugs,
