Zeke's fever returned tonight, so I shipped him off to express care. Mitch called to let me know that Zeke tested positive for strep AND influenza. Wowzers.
Upon arriving home, Zeke must have been feeling a little better. He told me, "The doctor said I should not do school."
Mitch quickly clarified, "She said you should not GO to school. I said, 'Well, I'll tell his mother, but we homeschool, so I'm not sure exactly where he should go.'"
Mitch said we can tell that Zeke is turning into a young man, growing up everyday. He is already exhibiting selective hearing!
When the other kids hear about Zeke's tough break, they'll be lining up to catch what he has.
::sigh:: I'm bracing for a second wave of fevers, if they come, and the thought that it will probably mean more appointments, tests, and medicines. We're running a regular hospital ward here. I need a second shift nurse to come on duty, though.
I'm watching Mercy like a hawk...so far she's been fever-free. I'm praying that *this time* she gets TONS of antibodies from breastmilk.
