Yuckies, please go away!

Sickness is making the rounds in our house. Safa has had a crazy hacking cough for about ten days and now Bilal has decided to follow suit. Saturday he had that bizarre twelve hour sickness, but did fairly well until yesterday morning when he started to cough. And his cough sounds quite like Safa's. He paid us a visit in our room at 3am last night, coughing so much that he nearly threw up. He felt hot so I checked his temperature, and he had a low grade fever. So I gave him some Tylenol and some cough medicine, which really helped. He lay with us for a couple of hours until he announced that he wanted to go back to his room; when he proceeded to gather up his blankie and Fuzzy (his little stuffed elephant) and went upstairs to his room all by himself.

He seemed to be better when he woke up this morning, but by mid-morning he started to get puny again, and he actually took a nap. When he woke up from his nap he was running a fever again, this time 102. Another dose of Tylenol perked him up, but he hardly ate anything at breakfast, lunch or dinner today. And by bedtime his fever was back. I am hoping that he gets better soon. And that Safa's cough gets better. And that Hamza doesn't get sick again (I think he started it). And that the caregivers don't get sick!

When Bilal is tired or not feeling well he finds so much comfort in snuggling up with his big sister. I love that little relationship they have. So sweet!

Ohh no. :( Sorry to hear about the sickies. Sooo cute that he likes to snuggle with his big sister, though.
