Sick boy

Aiden's first day back to daycare after the New Year turned out to be not-so-fun. Nate got called back to get Aiden because Aiden was lethargic and started throwing up.

We've spent the last 24 hours trying to get Aiden to sleep more than a few minutes at a time, yes, that includes overnight. He was very thristy and we were hesitant to give him anything to drink since he would throw up anything that went in. By morning I felt better about giving him Pedialyte by syringe a few drops at a time. After having quite a few drops it seemed that the Pedialyte would stay down and he was able to take more.

Aiden hasn't thrown up since last night and we've been able to get him to sleep next to us on the couch off and on all day. His fever isn't as high either.

Aiden has had a cough inthe last couple of days which, I think, actually caused the vomiting. Since the new information out on children's cough and cold medicine, I decided we'd try the old remedy of honey to help calm the cough in order to allow for better sleep. I have to say, he's snoozing next to me and hasn't been coughing like he was before.

Hopefully with the ability to sleep and drink Pedialyte, Aiden will recover quickly and be back on the move!
