So, got Addie back to school yesterday and though she is still coughing, she is acting totally better.
This morning matthew was coughing when he woke up. I took his temp and it was only 99 and I was (naively) hopeful. the call came at 3:00. His temp was 100.4 at the daycare (and since their cut-0ff is 100.5 I didn’t have to pick him up right away but she wanted to tell me that he wasn’t feeling well since she was supposed to babysit for me after I took them to the county swine flu shot clinic – and then went back to help staff it!). so, i started finishing up and as I was driving home I got the call that he was 101.5…yup, come pick him up.
He was pretty punky until he had motrin in his system for about 2 hours and now he is jumping all over the house and feeling better…interspersed with coughing.
So, another day at home for me. hoping that they won’t do this every 2-3 day another one is sick routine.
