Another Sick Child

Ryan has now come down with the virus Cole had last week.  I honestly can’t remember the last time he has been sick, and he is so miserable.  He just curls up on the couch in the fetal position- poor little guy!  He also has turned into a little dictator- hurling “commands” at me one after another- “I need some water,” I want to watch a little TV,” “I want mac & cheese for lunch,” and so forth.  Since he is hardly ever like this, I am playing “genie’ and his wish is my command.

Children’s Motrin does help him A LOT.  He will go from crying and curled up, to up and playing, and generally back to his happy self. 

I think he is on the tail-end of it, at least I hope so.  After not having a vacation since 2005, due to pregnancy and having a newborn, we are scheduled to leave for a 9 day vacation on Sunday.  I sure hope he is better by then.  For now, I’m making sure he rests and trying to keep him from feeling too bad.  I also hope Joe and I don’t come down with it, all though it seems to be pretty mild, so even if we do catch it, hopefully we’ll be able to handle it. 

It sure has been a rough summer for viruses and us. It is crazy.  I hope we have “paid our dues,” and won’t be this sick in the winter.  This has not been fun at all!

For everyone else who has sick kiddies, hang in there and I feel your pain. 

One funny thing though, tonight we went to Target to get some supplies, and Ryan was sitting in the shopping cart, feeling pretty good, as Joe pushed him.  We walked by the bra’s where they are all on display, and Ryan pointed to them and said, “That’s where nursies go!”



  1. I’m sorry Ryan is sick. I really hope that you and Joe don’t catch it right before vacation, nothing ruins a vacation quite like a virus!

  2. Oh I’m so sorry he’s sick! I knew he didn’t seem like himself on Monday when we were up there. On a positive note, at least he’s getting it out of the way now and not next week.

    Keep him resting (and you too if you can and drink lots of oj…do you take airbourne?) before your trip. I’ll keep my fingers crossed you don’t get it too!

  3. oh no. i hope he’s better soon and that you all stay healthy for your trip. maybe stock up on emergen-c.

    so cute about “that’s where nursies go.” hee, hee.

  4. Oh, bummer! I hope he’s better already and that you and Joe stay well!

    We’ve had only 1 virus this summer and only one kid got it (knock on wood) but we had a crazy month of April with some REAL baddies! I hate having sick kids 😦

    😀 “that’s where nursies go” 😀
