A Touch of the Flu

Eating breakfast Sunday morning- finally had an appetite back!

Sitting at his make-shift 'desk' reading his books.

Is that frog real?!?!!

Gus coloring with his toddler crayons from Nama Paulette. They were easy for him to hang onto, but he still wanted to eat them more than color with them. Also, the crayon is really soft, so we had to wash some of it out of the carpet, whenever Gus went off the page. ...We may have to wait just a little longer to use them again.

This weekend Gus had a touch of the flu. On Friday afternoon, while we were driving home from daycare, I looked in the the rear view mirror and saw Gus puking all over the place. I got him home, cleaned him up, took his temp (101) and gave him medicine. Poor little fella just wanted to cuddle all night. In the middle of the night he woke up with a temp of 103, so more medicine. We decided to give him medicine round the clock all day Saturday. Sunday, no medicine and no temp, he seemed much better. Today, Monday, he woke up with a rash and had some diarrhea, which probably means the virus is leaving his system. He was also left with a horrible stuffed up and nonstop runny, sneezing nose. No temp today though. We gave him a vapor bath tonight, and he will try daycare tomorrow. Hopefully this is the worst of the flu he gets this year, fingers crossed.

Gus this fall by the flower pots...
