I got the kids into the pediatrician last night

The boys were at the doctor’s last night and the verdict is in, they’re absolutely sick. Emmett has a respiratory infection but no signs of strep throat. He’s dealing with a virus and can return to school on Thursday, assuming he doesn’t get worse.

Elliott has a combo sinus infection and respiratory infection, with some asthma related complications. Because he’s not made any improvement in the last week or so, she changed his meds and he should be able to return to school on Thursday, assuming the new antibiotics work.

I’m supposed to have the boys to Akron Children’s Behavioral Health today. I asked if I should reschedule it but she said no. There’s no reason I can’t take them.

Everyone is moving slowly this morning but in good spirits. I’m looking forward to getting this trip to Akron down, so we can come home and let them rest.

It looks like everyone will be at least attempting to return to school tomorrow, barring any drastic changes.

  1. That’s good news. I remember Jacob being so sick in 8th grade that he was out for a month. Glad those days are over and Jacob hardly gets sick anymore!

    1. Every winter it gets like this. It seems the more stressed out they are, the worse it hits. I’m glad Jacob has outgrown that and I hope mine will follow..

      1. Hi Rob, I’m a new reader of your blog and I want to say you’re doing an amazing job. I have a 5 year old daughter with autism. It’s tough but so worth it. I can relate to this, my daughter just got over being incredibly sick. This time of year throws her and I both off. I hope they feel better soon and that you can get some rest soon.

        1. It’s nice to meet you. I’m glad your daughter is feeling better. ☺
