Slight Cabin Fever

I am not one that minds staying home.  I'm not one that runs a lot of errands just to run errands.  But I do end up with cabin fever when I have a sick kid.  And cabin fever messes with my mind.  You know what I'm talking about?

If you remember, Capps had tested positive for the Flu a few weeks ago.  He was home with fever, cough and headache for 8 days.  It was awful.  He was miserable.  I was tired of being home.  blah.  blah. blah.

Tavis was complaining of a headache on Thanksgiving day, but he is prone to headaches, so I didn't think much of it.  Well, next day, he started running a fever, and he is not one that usually gets a fever.  It is staying around 102, slightly controlled by the Advil/Tylenol switch off.

Seven days later, he still is running a fever, and still has a headache, and he has a cough.  I've seen the doctor twice - once Saturday and once yesterday, Wednesday.  They tested him for flu both times, but they were both negative.  They did blood work, which was normal, so it is just a virus that has to run it's course.  Ugh!

My Mommy sense tells me one of those tests was wrong.  He has the exact same symptoms that Capps had.  I'm thinking maybe Capps just had this weird, eternal virus too, and not the flu.  That is just my opinion.

Who knows?

I do know that I'm tired of being stuck at home.  And I'm really worried about Tavis making up a whole week of school work.

Ok, enough complaining. Carry on!
