Still sick, and tired

Lil' Man has been pretty much sick the entire month of February. First he was wheezing, then he had croup, and then an ear infection.  Now he has a stomach virus and strep on top of that.  Sigh

I didn't think it was humanly possible to vomit and poop so much. It all started at 4am Friday morning.  My boss was less than thrilled when I called in sick considering  I just started back two weeks ago.

This morning he look awful, and was still not able to keep down liquids so I took him to the doctor.  Sure enough he was dehydrated.  They gave him some anti_ nausea medication and he was finally able to keep down liquids. 

The ped was little concerned because he had a fever which isnt typical of the stomach bugs that are going around.  So she decided to give him a strep test, which came back positive.  That explains the stinky breath.

He was so out of it that he slept almost the entire two hours we were at the Dr's office.  Too bad he wont sleep now cause I could really use a nap.
