After I finally got the kids to sleep last night, I ran into another mini-crisis. Out of nowhere, Gavin wakes up sobbing because his back and neck hurt so bad that he couldn’t go back to sleep.
I woke Lizze up. It took her and I both, to calm Gavin down. The only thing we could do was give him an Advil and try to get him back to sleep.
He did eventually go back to sleep, and when he woke up this morning he was feeling better. We have no idea what caused his pain last night but suspect that perhaps he was sleeping in a weird position.
Lizze let me sleep this morning and she got up with the boys. Actually, she pulled the wife card and ordered me back to bed cause she knew how tired I was. ❤️
Both Elliott and Emmett are home again today for the same reasons they’ve been home all week. We spoke with the school today and out of the hundred or so students they have in the school, thirty or forty are out sick. In fact, many of those have had to be hospitalized for high fevers.
Lizze and I have decided that we aren’t going push the boys to get back to school until we know they are better. Sending them back too soon will likely result in them getting sick again. That’s just the way it tends to happen.
Neither of the boys have gone twenty four hours without a fever and Elliott is battling bouts of intense nausea.
Frankly, I’m not sure what this bug is, but it’s quite unpleasant and seems to linger for some time.
