He's still got a very drippy nose and a cough, but his fever's gone and his spirits are up. He only threw up the first night, and not since then. He's no longer lying on the couch like a listless lump, he's playful and happy. Still home from school because, well, he's still sick, and daycare has a 24-hours after fever rule anyway.

It's great now that he's getting older and more rational. Yesterday afternoon his fever spiked and he was just miserable. I wanted to give him some Ibuprofen to make him more comfortable. In the past, we've had a really hard time getting Ibuprofen into him, because he doesn't like the taste. But yesterday I was able to explain - and he to understand - that yes, the medicine was going to taste a little yucky, but then he would feel better, and he took it with little complaint. Hooray!
