The two preschoolers are feeling a lot better. Fevers have gone down and their energy has perked up. They do not, however, want to swallow large quantities of food or drink, even if bribed with Popsicles. They haven't even touched the vanilla ice cream that their doctor said would be the thing they would enjoy and be able to swallow the most. The best thing I can get them to swallow is those little drinkable yogurts. Do you think two little kids can survive on two yogurt drinks a piece per day? Apparently we are going to find out.
Matthew is a whole different story. His fever suddenly disappeared this morning and he ate a PB&J sandwich and drank apple juice. He played happily all afternoon and then ate a normal dinner. He says he can't drink milk though because it makes him "feel kind of funny." Tomorrow is his last day of school and they are having a party at the park. He has been so excited about it. So part of my wants to say that even though he appears to be all well he might not be as well as he is making himself out to be. He really wants to go to school tomorrow. He doesn't have a fever but there is the whole milk making him feel funny thing. Not sure if we should allow him to go to school tomorrow or not. Making mommy decisions is hard!
