Just wanted to update everyone on Collin and write an official apology letter to anyone who may have been in the Flowery Branch Target today. We just couldn't take it anymore. We had to get out of the house. He has still been running a fever around 101. That's 6 days! But he was really good about covering his mouth when he coughed. He still seems a little tired (and he's pretty much STILL getting unlimited TV, movies, etc.). We did get some new color wonder markers with a new Cars coloring book in hopes of finding something else he can do while lounging on the couch. Until today, we hadn't ventured out of the house except out of necessity (Publix for more Tylenol and preschool registration). So today, we just HAD to go and buy a couple of birthday presents, some diapers, and some oatmeal.
Speaking of oatmeal...the main effect of this whole flu ordeal has been an absolute lack of appetite. I mean, I have pulled out all the tricks, and nothing has worked. We're talking milkshakes, Sonic, McDonalds, oatmeal, macaroni and cheese, etc. All favorites which would normally be gobbled right up. How long can a preschooler go with a few bites of food at every meal? And also, how many days in a row can he take Tylenol? (Sidenote: That sentence used to say "how long can a toddler go with a few bites". I guess it's time to say "preschooler".)
Hopefully we're on our way back up. In the meantime, we'll keep spraying that Lysol in hopes that no one else gets sick!
