I’m over it!

I know that with the start of school comes sickie germs. I have two older kids, so I know. I think we’ve taken it to a whole new ridiculous level, though. We are midway through the fourth week of school here. Ziggy missed a full week due to hand, foot and mouth. He recovered from that, and we sent him back. Unfortunately, his immune system was still weakened, and thanks to a sneezer in his class, he’s sick again. He had a 104+ degree fever, and he’s so congested. He’s now developed a gross cough. He’s missed a whole bunch more school, which I hate, but I don’t want to be that parent who sends their child in sick. Not to mention the fact that he’s a miserable, cranky, mucous-leaking boy. Hey, our pediatrician has to be loving us, though. Too bad we can’t get a frequent visitor card… you know, after a certain number of visits, you get one free. Heck, I remember back when my daughter was in kindergarten and had a sinus infection, double ear infection and pneumonia all at once, they gave her stickers, pencils, crayons and a puzzle that she could color. No, I can’t complain about our pediatricians. They are great, and always take such great care of my kids. They are so great that we drive a half an hour to see them, even though we could easily find someone closer. I can’t imagine doing that though. We’ve been with them for more than 15 years, now, and they are supportive of all our parenting choices, and genuinely care about each of my kids.
I’m just hoping that Ziggy can manage to get better and stay better soon!

I think the only benefit of a sick Ziggy is the snuggles.
