This earlier weekend was once as soon as a rough one. It all started Thursday morning when my oldest son (he’s 6) complained of feeling tired. I chalked it up to an uncongenial night time time’s sleep and sent him to university most efficient to get a call to pick him up about an hour later. To the doctor’s administrative center we went and were given right here area with a confirmation of strep throat and prescription for antibiotics. I saved him area Friday and problems went simply ok. I was cautiously optimistic that my other sons-ages 5 and 2-would be spared their own bouts of strep throat.
That is, until about 2am Friday night time time/Saturday morning when my 5 year old-fashioned climbs in bed with me complaining of an disappointed stomach. I settled him in for a cuddle when it all started: steady throwing up for the next 3 hours. Did I indicate that my husband wasn’t area (thanks Army.) Did I moreover indicate: I’m a hard-core sympathy puker.
It was once as soon as an uncongenial night time time.
