He's been home sick all week and I won't lie to you. When the symptoms are listlessness and loss of appetite and you do not have any kind of diagnosis (besides generic virus) after a few days your lack of sympathy may reach Mommy Dearest levels.
This morning I told him he had to TRY. That he had to have breakfast and get dressed and get in the car and if that was to much he could just come back home with me. He ate and ten minutes later I found him crying on the couch -- overwhelmed with the idea of going to school.
I took him back to the doctor this morning and they said that the mono virus only shows up on the tests 70% of the time and if they did another test they would probably find it.
He really doesn't seem to be feeling any better but at least now I kind of have a diagnosis.
Poor kid. We've worked on homework a bit but he just kind of zones out on me. He even gets tired from playing video games and he falls asleep in the middle of the day. Sure signs that something is wrong.
Now that I have my kind-of-diagnosis I'm going to spoil him rotten until he tells me to leave him alone and I'm going to keep hoping hoping hoping that D8 doesn't get it.
