My 11 year old is actually asking me if he can go to school. I never thought I'd see the day! I kept him home on Monday and Tuesday to celebrate the Russian Christmas, but he got sick on Monday, so he would have been home anyway. At least we have the excuse of Christmas that won't count against his absences. Today is Friday. He is still sick.
Son had a really high fever. I don't know how high it actually got because he stayed at my mom's house at Christmas, but when he came home it was 103.7. You know how when you're really sick and then you start to feel better, you think you feel SO much better? Well, last night he told me he thought his fever was gone and he could go to school today. I took his temp. - 102.7! He couldn't believe it! "The thermometer must be broken!", he replied. I took my daughter's temp. just to make sure. Nope, her temp. was normal. It wasn't broken. The school rule is your temp. has to be below 100 for 24 hours.
I got all of my son's work from school, so that won't be a problem. At least now he has all weekend to catch up on his work and get all better. Oh, then I realized! TONIGHT is the school dance! So that's why you want to go to school! Actually I wouldn't mind if he went if his temp was down, but I don't think the school would allow it. Sorry! I just don't think it would be fair to everyone at school to send him in. Maybe next time.
It seems like so many blogs that I've been reading, everyone is talking about their kids or themselves being sick! Everyone in my house has been sick. My husband and I both have terrible colds right now. Is there anyone who has managed to stay healthy?
