Can you hear that?

What is it? It's something I haven't heard in this house for the past 2 weeks. It's silence. An actual pause between coughs. The first sign that my kiddos are getting better. Well actually, Safa's at school so it's only me and Bilal at home, but it is so blissful to not hear a constant cough. And Bilal hasn't run a fever this morning, for the first time in 8 days. He actually asked for breakfast this morning. Granted, he didn't eat much, but considering Zakir had to threaten to take him to the hospital for an IV last night, that's a huge improvement. Yesterday I virtually had to force feed him ice cream at breakfast time. Don't judge me! I know ice cream's not good at breakfast time, but I was desperate, and he really needed to take his medicine, but not on an empty stomach. Today he had half an apple and a few sips of milk for lunch, that's better. He still sounds terribly nasal, and is very hoarse from all the coughing, but he really seems to be getting better.

Today is Eid ul Adha, but Zakir wasn't able to take off to go to for prayers. So we're having a less eventful day than our last Eid. Tonight we have a pot luck dinner to go to, so that should be fun. Eid Mubarak to my friends and family!

Yay for improving health! And, I have served Elijah desserts at breakfast just to get him to eat a few times. No judgment here!
