The Nighmare That Tonight May Provide

He's passed out in the hall. The effort of going to the bathroom was just too overwhelming. Must rest. Must suck thumb. Must close eyes.


I thought this was a little strange and out of character for my boy. Thus, when taking his temperature I was not surprised by the 102.5 degree reading.

One hour after taking a dose of Advil he was spotted running around our property like a wild child.

Let's hope tonight bodes well for the adults on the premises...

p.s. He was mostly quiet all night thank goodness. (Only one middle of the night wake up call for mom...)

Well the poor thing! Nighttime is very scary when a child is sick! It all seems so much worse at night, and I do think the germies get bolder under cover of darkness. Hope the night passes peacefully and he gets well soon.

I know he is sick, but that is an adorable picture! Hope he is all better now.

Hang on to that picture! It would be a great candidate to show up on the big screen at his future wedding.

So sorry to hear that, Julia, I hope he'll be feeling better soon...and yes, that photo is a keeper, like for showing his girlfriend that he's getting serious with (he, he, he)

Awww, poor thing. I hope he is, indeed, better.

Poor kid! Strangely he looks very comfortable though.

Suzi said...

Happy to see he is feeling better.

My only similar experience is when I was a sick kid. I remember that as the time I was glad to have parents around.

Sorry he is feelin' crummy Julia but love the blankie and the patched knee. I had both as a kid, brings back memories :)

Even when he's not feeling well, he's adorable. I hope today finds him all better and all of you rested and well.

That should be a Norman Rockwell painting... complete down to the patch on the knee.
