Home Sick

BJ had his first day home sick from kindergarten today. Woke up with a yucky cough and the sniffles, enough to merit staying home so he didn't spew germs on his classmates all day.

We already had an appointment scheduled with his pediatrician for this afternoon, a follow up to be sure there weren't any issues from the minor concussion last Friday. So we headed in for that, she gave him the all-clear to return to normal activities (yay!) and confirmed that he has a cold. No fever, just congestion and a cough. Not sure if he'll be well enough to go to school in the morning, but hope so.

Now let's just pray it doesn't make its way through the family. With an outdoor show on Saturday (and the possibility of rain, alas) the last thing I need is to get sick. Who, me, achey? Clearly this is a night when I should go to bed early. Which I shall now do!

At that age it was always strep throat with my son. He had it 4 times in one school year during 1st grade.
Hope your baby feels better soon.
