Poor Sammy!

Well, it's been a rough couple of weeks in this household. Max was out of daycare sick from last Tuesday through Friday. Then on Monday, daycare was closed because she had a stomach virus. But, Sammy also stayed home because his throat hurt.

Well, he got progressively worse and on Wed. we went to the doctor to be checked for strep throat. The initial test came back negative, but because of his symptoms, they also wanted him to be tested for mono.

And unfortunately, that came back positive. He has been pretty miserable all week. His throat is very sore, he is extremely congested, and really isn't eating anything. I offer him popsicles and ice cream for breakfast lunch and dinner and he really wants nothing to do with it.

We are doing whatever we can to help with the congestion, gargling with salt water and sitting in a steamy bathroom has real get junk out. He also takes naps each day, but there is really nothing you can do for it except let it runs it course.

At least he tries to do a little homework here and there :) Poor kid.

So we are going on 11 days of a sick child, which also means 11 days of missing work here and there!
