Did someone say school this week?... Day 287 26AUG09
At least Joshua got one full day of school in before he decided to run a small fever. Yes, that's right, sometime in the past week he caught a bug. He came home yesterday so excited about school and by last night he had coughed about 14 times. How do I know that? Because when your child that has leukemia sneezes or coughs you pay attention. He woke up at 6:30 not feeling well so I personally went to the school to speak to his wonderful teachers this morning. About mid-morning he started to run a low grade fever of 100.2. As most of you know, at 100.4 we make the call! I have taken his temp every hour or two today as so far so good. Tonight he will sleep out in the living room close to us and we will watch his temp. In the morning We will take him to the clinic to get his counts checked. If he is fighting off a virus, we want to make sure that his counts have not dropped. So much for the first week of school. We gave it our best shot, especially Joshua. He absolutely loved being at school on Tuesday, seeing his friends and learning the new routine. He loves his teachers and can't wait to be able to make it back into the classroom.
