Sundays with Gage – Recovery

When an ER doctor writes your 3-year-old an antibiotics prescription for two infections, it should me mandatory to also write the attending parent a prescription for a vacation or if that’s too much he might throw in a bottle of wine with the bill.  Gage has been on antibiotics this week  and started camp again on Thursday.  That’s a week and a half of yuckiness and fever.  I  filled my own wine prescription but really think I need to up it a notch to a day at the spa!  After some early trouble we have found a method of getting him to take his medicine.  Yesterday it took Jason and hour and a half and this morning it took me about 20 minutes.   This is the first day he’s actually starting eating meals again, YAY!  I know he lost over a pound the first week he was sick, so the boy needs to eat.

    What a relief that he’s feeling better–and hopefully you’ll be able to get some relief as well. It’s tough when they’re sick! I always enjoy the extra snuggles but that’s about it. Elle had to take some tamiflu a few months ago and we would fight for an hour or so before she’d finally take it. We eventually had to mix it with chocolate syrup to help it go down easier. Sigh. Enjoy the spa day–even if just mentally. 😉

      We decided that yesterday (day 8) was the last day of the antibiotic. It was supposed to be 10, but I just couldn’t stomach 2 more days of the figthing and he really has been fine for quite a few days.

    Glad to hear that Gage is feeling better!! As you know, I love going to the beach, but a day at the spa sounds almost as good as a day at the beach!!

    I am so glad Gage is feeling better, Stacy. Mouse doesn’t like to take medication either and it’s such an ordeal to get it into her. I’ve mixed it with her juice (which isn’t ideal, but if it works . . .), tried to coax her to drink it with promises of something she really wants, and held her down with the help of my husband to put it in her mouth. I hate doing it that way, but sometimes it’s necessary. 😦

    Stacy, my wife, Joni, and I always made sure to get away together – without the kids! – for a few days here and there. Today they’re 38, 35, and 30, and they don’t seem too scarred from us having done that (although you never know what they tell their therapists!). I hope you and your husband can do that sometimes too.
