My Children have been sick now for over a week, it has not been fun here at all!! Gwen got sick I believe last Monday. She had three days of a fever then on the fourth she started to cough and dry heaving, the day before she stopped eating. So on the fourth day I called the doctors office and got us in. They had us do all these test which all came back fine!! Doc said it was a virus nothing she could do about it. When Gwen got her blood drawn Gilbert wanted his blood taken too. It was funny and sad too, he was so upset. The next day Gwen started to feel better! But I could tell Gilbert was coming down with it. For the last three days Gilbert has been sick. Unlike Gwen he will not take any medicine to bring down his fever. Which is kind of funny because about a year ago he love taking medicine, he manage to get the top off of a bottle of Tylenol and drink some, of course I called poison control freaking out, but was told that unless he drank the whole bottle there was nothing to worry about and to just watch him. Anyways last night Gilbert temp was high again, I do not know how high, but it was really hot to the touch. Once again I tried to get him to take medicine but he wouldn't so I put him in the bath and gave him a luck warm bath. Gilbert really enjoyed it, it brought down him temp and slept though the rest of the night. Today we went to commissary I saw some Tylenol melt away so I bough it. Since Gilbert temp is still warm (so is Gwen's) I gave them each one, which they both liked! On the bottle the age range they are in says to give them 3 each, but their weigh range says to give them 2. since their fever was not high I only gave the 1 each. They really like it. Tonight I gave them both another one since their fevers seem to peak at night. So for there has been no crying! This is the First time in over week I will go to bed alone , I don't know if that is a good thing or bad thing.
In between all that I have not been feeling to well myself. I am just hoping I do not catch what they have:
