Emmett’s got to take some rather foul tasting medicine in order to help him make it through this particular fever flare.
Even though it helps with the pain, he hasn’t made the connection that taking the meds make him feel better.
We’ve offered all kinds of things to get him to take his meds. Nothing works because he knows how bad it tastes. We can’t even hide it in applesauce or ice cream.
I told Emmett that if he took his meds that we could squishy couch. For those new to this site or don’t remember the famous squishy couch, let me remind you.
Basically, I push our two couches together to make them one big bed and we camp out. We watch movies and snuggle.
Long story short, it worked and Emmett is sleeping comfortably on the terribly uncomfortable couch, right next to me. It’s a small price to pay for him to feel better. Perhaps, we’ll do this until he’s feeling better.
