Nikolai missed his first day of school since he has been going to school today. His fever yesterday was around 104, today it has been more 100 or 99. The doctor called to tell me that the culture did not indicate strep throat and that it was just a virus. He surely has been sick for "just a virus"!! He said his throat still hurt a little bit. She said I should stop the amoxicillin. I have not decided if we will go to school tomorrow or not. We might just both stay home one more day. I do not want him to give anyone else this virus. I do admit he has been so sweet today. He had pizza for breakfast and lunch. And, has munched on the brownies I made for him this morning. I am glad his appetite is back that I have let him eat anything he wants.
I made Deniska sleep on the couch last night. He thought that was a great adventure! He couldn't understand why Nikolai was not going to school this morning! So what if he was running a temperature, coughing, had a sore throat, and blowing his nose. Is that any reason not to go to school?!! Oh, to be 10 again!!
