We've been trying to nurse a sick (almost) 4 year old back to his normal very active self. Tom-Tom has not been feeling good all week. He seemed like he might have a cold bug at first, then Wednesday night he started to have a bad cough. Wednesday, after we got home from going out to eat and visiting a friend Tom-Tom went straight to sleep. Well, he woke up about an hour later coughing so hard he was throwing up. I took his temp (under his arm) and it was 102.6. I got really worried because he hasn't ever had a temp that high. I then attempted to take it under his tongue he didn't do so well with that one but it still came back 102.2. I was about to take him to the ER, but hubby was like no we'll just let him rest and see how he feels tomorrow. Well, we did things his way and Tom-Tom was still very sick Thursday morning. I took him to his doctor and turns out he has strep throat :-(. I feel so bad for him. He has a really bad barking cough, really high fevers, his voice is crackly/hoarse, runny nose and he's been complaining of headaches. The doctor gave him a prescription for anitbiotics. I hope my little man feels better. We were planning on going to the circus Thursday night, but that got cancelled due to us not wanting to get our whole family (cousins) sick with strep throat :-(. I was really looking forward to going, but oh well. We're planning on going sometime this weekend. The dr said he is only contagious for 24 hrs after he starts taking his mads. :-) I hope I don't catch it! Being 34 weeks pregnant, I already feel like crap most days! The thing that scares me the most is the high fevers. I've been taking every precaution I can to avoid getting sick! I stocked up on hand sanitizer last night and I've been washing my hands like crazy! I also plan to disinfect the whole house after he isn't contagious anymore! lol The last thing me or hubby need to get is strep throat!
Well, enough about having cooties!
Time for 5 Question Friday!! :-D
1. Do you prefer your ice cream in a bowl or in a cone?Honestly it depends on my mood! I like both or just straight out of the carton! :)
2. What three things do you love the smell of?Cinnamon, french vanilla and pumpkin.
3. Giftcards or no? (In regards to gift giving...)
Depends on the person. Friends or someone really hard to find a gift for... yes I would give them a gift card.
My family HATES getting gift cards as gifts. They feel gift cards are too impersonal and I agree. I love finding that one gift that makes the other peson smile!
4. What sports did you play in high school if any and do you still play them?I didn't play any. I don't participate in any now either. I'm lazy (I know!).
Well, I take that back. I will participate in a family game of kickball or volleyball.
5. Were you in band in high school? What instrument did you play?
Nope. I was just there to socialize! I didn't participate in any extra curricular activities.
