Slow progress

We're very, very slowly getting better. Today Bilal's fever peaked at 101, that's better than yesterday. He is still coughing a lot, and we have reluctantly resorted to giving him low doses of cough medicine. You can tell the difference when his medicine wears off. This afternoon Safa and Hamza were at a birthday party and we took Bilal to the mall. Well, we were walking around Children's Place when he started coughing, and coughing, and coughing, until he threw up all over himself. Aha, we were in Children's Place! I bought a new outfit, took him to the bathroom for a quick clean up and change, and we were all set to go. I really was hoping that more than 48 hours of antibiotics would have him feeling all better, but this is going to take some time. Thank goodness he is good about taking his meds. Seems like he is taking more medicine than he is eating or drinking!

Oh Bilal, poor thing. I really hope he starts feeling better soon. Maybe he just needs a few more days of rest. Hey good think you were at The Children's Place!
