Much Better

After days of fevers reaching 103, he's better. Much better. It's been 10 years since I sat with him all night, cool compress on the forehead, rubbing his back. Mostly though I showed him how to monitor being that sick, when to call the doc, how to keep track of meds and temps and drinking enough. Alex has been so healthy, until this last 10 days, that we didn't even know how to call him in sick to school--literally never done it. He's received a drawer full of the ultimate in dork awards--perfect attendance. And were it not for travel to fencing tournaments he would have won them last year as well. A little freakish, isn't it? :)

Love this little haiku generator that appeared on housefic_meta, a great community:
