Day Eighteen 2013

Grandson Elijah is not feeling well today. Coughing, sneezing, congestion, runny nose. He left school and came to stay with me this morning and seemed to magically get better. We ate lunch at Ocha with his grandpa and mom, and Officer Mike stopped by our table to say hello and give him a police badge to wear, which he happily wore all day. But when we got back home, he quickly slid downhill into fever and chills and aches, along with the congestion, runny nose, coughing and sneezing. When this kid doesn’t feel like playing video games, something is not right. He was pretty pitiful. His mom took him to the doc. They say it isn’t the flu, but it may be too soon to tell. He may have the beginnings of bronchitis. He’s fighting some sort of infection and got meds for that. Not a great way to spend a long weekend (school is out Monday for MLK day). And he probably won’t get to play in his Vision Basketball double header tomorrow morning. Hope and pray you feel back to your old self ASAP, Elijah! I hate it when my kiddos are sick!
Wishing everyone a healthy TGIF!

Bummer dude! Hope he feels better. Knox is in the same boat I think. Same symptoms. Hopefully it's not contagious.

I texted Holly last night to see if Elijah had a game today and found out he was sick. :( I hope his antibiotics will get him well quick! Cool police badge! Is that the Officer Mike that comes to the schools to talk about drugs?

Sorry to hear that Elijah is sick! Hope he is feeling better today. Bronchitis isn't any fun :(
