Cam came home from school early Monday sick. He's been coughing non-stop ever since. I took him to a fruitcake doctor, who at first tried to tell me it was reflux. Well, I knew it most certainly was not. I explained to him that maybe he had misunderstood his symptoms. After explaining that he was coughing till he vomits and not the other way around, I think he finally understood. Sorry if this is TMI, but gotta get the point across. He wrote three prescriptions and sent us home. When we were leaving the office, the nurse told me that this germ that's going around leaves the cough lingering for weeks. Like three or four weeks. Uhhh, thanks. He's still coughing. With. Every. Breath. He. Takes. I flew out of the bed last night because I heard him coughing so hard I honestly thought he was choking. Is there any worse sound than hearing your kid cough? It doesn't matter how old they are.
So. . . I wanted to fumigate the house this morning before I went to my job. It just feels sick. When I came home, it didn't feel any better. Suz said it's my imagination. I'm gonna give it a good cleaning tonight and see if I can't get rid of some of these germs.
Yesterday I had my annual lunch with Reid and Alayna at their school. I've gone every year since Reid was in kindergarten and this is his last year as an elementary school kid. He'll be a big bad middle schooler next year. I'm sure he won't want his frumpy old aunt to have lunch with him. Even if she does bring him the best lunch ever. Next year, though, I'll get to eat with Eli, who'll be in kindergarten. Alayna was so happy and surprised to see me. They get out of school next Wednesday and I think she thought I had forgotten about coming this year. As if. When they have visitors for lunch, they get to sit at a special table and bring a friend to join them. It's always funny because they really end up talking to their friends more than me. Yesterday I took Eli with me, so he and I had some good quality time together. Here are a few photos of the day.
They want to make sure everyone knows you're a visitor, so they make you wear this horrible neon green visitor sticker.
I'm not sure why both Alayna and Reid both knelt down so low and only showed their faces in the picture, but they both did it. Eli's really into sports and he always pretends like he wins whatever game he's make believe playing. Hence, holding up the number 1!
This was way too many pictures of me for one post. You'll never see this many again. I promise.
Till tomorrow, Happy Humpday Evening!
