Hudson has been really sick with Strep throat so we spent the weekend trying to get him to drink liquids, eat something (anything!), and sleep, meanwhile trying to protect Lincoln from getting the crud. This is one of the worst weekends we've had in a long, long while. I am admittedly excited to be in the office on this Monday morning.
Hudson perked up around 6pm last night (exactly 48 hours after he started the antibiotics) as we were driving to the pediatrics ER to get him treated for dehydration. The on-call doctor at our pediatrics practice told us that if he would not drink by Sunday evening he had to get IV liquids in him, given his symptoms (sunken eyes, lethargy). So we got everyone loaded into the car and as we were about to drive away, he asked for Goldfish and milk. Mike and I just looked at each other and I wanted to cry - out of relief and sheer exhaustion. So instead of the ER, we drove to get ice cream. It was pouring rain but we sat outside anyway as he slurped up his melted sundae.
Later last night and this morning he was back to his normal self.
Happy news: Link rolled over last week!
