Sickness in the Air
Big D is sick today. Fever, vomiting, quietness, all spell S I C K.
It started yesterday evening. Mr Contrary, Big D, got a time out for behaving like a brat, only this time 'mom' layed down with him. You know. To help him get through it. He fell asleep. Fell asleep? That's something to be noted, but it could have been simply tireness. However, when he woke up he looked weak. He felt hot. And he couldn't keep anything down.
"Here... here's a cool wash cloth to put on your forehead."
"It will help you feel better."
"See if you can chew this medicine. It will help you feel better.
"Just see if you can get a little down. Really. It will help you feel better."
"aw. moan. I don't.... " (hurl)
This morning he's still warm, but not hot and he has been able to keep a sip of water down. If one were to look for the silver lining in this its how quiet he is. That doesn't happen every day.
I'm feeling a little queasy, but I think its just empathy. Yeah. That's it.
