What a week!

I’m going stir crazy! Spring break started last Monday and ends today and what have I done to enjoy it? Not a thing. I’ve been indoors the whole time tending to a very sick boy. That means the other two kids have had to stay inside as well. (I hate apartment living)

Count Dooku started getting sick two Sunday’s ago when he came down with a high fever, sore throat and cough. After 3 days the fever was gone and he seemed to be getting better so he went to school Thurs. and Fri. Then Saturday his cough got worse and he started losing his voice. By Sunday the fever was back. I’m one of those moms who likes to let illness run its course but when he was worse than ever on Thursday, I called the doctor and got him in. He has strep throat so he’s been on antibiotics.

I’ve been heartbroken watching him suffer. He is normally so active and loud (not to mention rather difficult to deal with), but these past two weeks he’s been calm and snuggly. As much as I’ve loved it it’s made me sad because it’s not who he is. My child doing a 180 in behavior is definite cause for concern. So although I loved my oldest boy being calm and peacable, I’m happy that his roudy self is starting to peek out again. For the first time in two weeks he hasn’t been on the couch half the day and I’ve actually had to scold him several times for picking on his brother. It’s a sure sign that he’s getting better. And just in time to go back to school tomorrow too. Ha!

I am so getting out this week with Sassypants, rain or shine because I am sick to death of being stuck inside!

Yes, you explained exactly how I always felt when Clint got really sick. Nice to have him mellow out - but not the Clint we knew and loved.
