Our little fellow is feeling much better. He woke me up, crying, at 2:00 this morning, and when I asked what he needed, he said, “Food!” I fed him a bowl of yogurt, and he was fine. He woke up at the normal time, smiling, running around thrilled to feel good again. After eating breakfast, he found a bowl full of soaked beans I was planning to can (bottle) today, and filled all the jars for me, then started finding lids for them. He’s had a few spells of not feeling happy today, but overall he’s done great.
Our little sickie is still under the weather. He’s spent all day laying on the couch or his sister’s bed, resting. This afternoon, though, he has eaten a fair amount, and this evening he sat up for awhile! We’re taking turns holding him and entertaining him, which he loves. Good thing there are a lot of us! This picture shows what is happening right now. One thing special about this picture is that the big brother who is reading to him is severely dyslexic and it has taken years for him to be able to read well enough to do this! He is reading slowly but quite well.
We don’t often have anybody sick around here, but the youngest was out-of-sorts this morning, and then started feeling hot. By lunch time he was obviously sick, with probably an ear ache and fever, and he’s been laying around all afternoon—not like him at all. Poor fellow. I’m afraid it’s a nasty flu that’s been going around, which we were exposed to three times last week. I’ve gotten to cuddle him more than usual!
