Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self. Cyril Connolly (1903 - 1974)


Saying I love You Through Sickness And Health 4Ms #Music

This has been a tough week. My son had the sniffles on Sunday. Woke up and didn't speak much on Monday. This boy is a sunshine tornado! He doesn't stop, so when he is quiet, I know something is definitely amiss.

It was Mardi Gras break from school, so they had Monday through Wednesday off.

He was so very sick. I almost cried. The fevers would spike over and again. And he was so weak and could barely stand.
I did everything to help him to feel well and return to healing.
On Thursday, the fever was rather high, so I brought him in to the emergency room. Of course, then his temperature was just fine. Wouldn't you know it.
But they diagnosed him with the flu.

Oh, it was bad. I almost cried to see him like that.
He is always so alive. So sweet, thoughtful, helpful. Always a million 'I love yous' each day! Hugs, jokes. He is just a bundle of joy!

He is now on the prescribed meds which he hates, but he is having no more fevers and is healing. Oh, I'm so relieved for him! And so is he I"m sure.

Doc says he can go back to school tomorrow. I hope so. He doesn't want to go. I wish he could stay home a bit longer, but sadly he'll have to go in.

Another reason I still wish so much that I was homeschooling my children. I wouldn't have to worry about these things.

He missed his first soccer practice, but meh.

My daughter did well at her first soccer practice session. Team/coach looks hopeful.

Hope y'all had a good weekend.

  1. Colette, I'm sorry your son is sick. DD#2 was diagnosed with the flu on Friday. She stayed out of work until Sunday which I was afraid was too soon for her to go back but whatcha going do? There's little I can now that's she grown. lol DH kept up with her progression through the evening. She said she was doing okay but tired. I hope she doesn't pay for it today. "I Just Called To Say I Love You" is one of my favorite Stevie Wonder songs. It always makes me feel good to hear. BTW, home schooling does offer some protection against the cold/flu season. The only time our kids got sick was sometimes after taking their annual tests which was administered through our umbrellas school usually late winter when the cold/flu season was getting its second wind. Thanks for the dance and have a good week!

  2. I hope your son gets better soon. Stevie Wonder is a true classic.

  3. Oh man! It always hurts a mama's heart when a kid is sick - and the flu is so not fun! Glad he's on the mend, but I'd sure want to keep him home a few more days and love on him! :) LOVE your song choice - Stevie Wonder is always awesome! :) Have a great week - hope your little one is 100% soon, and that no one else gets it!
