Tyler had a big day planned yesterday. He wanted to go to Fayetteville (where Kale lives) and take Courtney ice skating and he invited ME! As it turns out, the skating rink is closed until later this week, but he still wanted to make a day of it.
Tyler has been sick for over 2 weeks. He went to the doctor and was told he had strep throat two weeks ago tomorrow, and was prescribed Z-pack and took it completely. But, he has been coming home in the evenings from work with fever and dog-tired and sleeping a LOT. Yesterday morning when we were getting ready to leave, I could tell he wasn’t well. His throat is so clogged up you can barely understand him. His eyes look terrible. But, he said he still wanted to go. Big mistake.
When we were at Kale’s… he fell asleep. He could barely eat lunch or supper – he tried, but he can barely swallow. When we were leaving we decided he didn’t need to drive on the two hour trip home, so he and Courtney got in the back seat of my car and I drove – taxi style. Within a couple of minutes, he was out like a light. Courtney sat back there, quiet as a church mouse, so I asked her if I could pull over and she could get up front to talk with me. She was good for it!! Which made my drive so much more enjoyable. Thanks, Courtney!
I’m no doctor, although I have stayed at a Holiday Inn Express once, but I’m making the diagnosis right now that my baby has mononucleosis. I had it back in 1991 (when I was 27 years old) and I was so sick I missed a MONTH of work. He is a sick boy… and has all the signs of mono. I’m just worrying myself sick over him. I guess after all these years, I’ve still got “mommy mode”! Get well soon, Fester.
