S.O.S. Sick Kid Aboard

The title just about says it all. My son has been sick since Sunday with high fevers and a sore throat. At first I thought it was just a little bug that would pass as quickly as it came. However, I was so wrong. He has been fussing and whining A LOT since Sunday. I try to be a patient Mommy and I try to remind myself that it is not his fault he is fussing or hurting from being sick. But to be honest (as I am to a fault sometimes) my patience has ran thin. As I write this blog it is midnight and he is still fussing. Every time he falls asleep it is not for long, he wakes back up crying. I know he has to be exhausted because I am. I think the part that is causing me to get impatient is not the crying it is the fact that he is inconsolable. When he starts fussing he will not talk to me, listen to me, or answer me. I ask questions like “would you like a drink?”  And “would you like some more throat spray?” Or do you want Mommy to lay with you?” But no answer just crying and rolling all over the bed. I am a doer so I get frustrated when I can not fix it and make him better. I know this quality or flaw however you may see it is really going to get me in the next few years as my tweens go through their teen years. But nevertheless it is a need I have I guess you could say. I don’t like leaving problems unsolved it drives me crazy. So you can imagine the circus that is going on in my head as I try to “fix” my baby boy.
On the bright side I did take him to the Dr. He gave him some antibiotics which in my mind should work immediately LOL. I am now wondering how many doses of the antibiotic it is going to take to at least get him some relief. Because it is so sad to watch him hurt like that knowing he has had all of the Tylenol and Ibuprofen he can have for the day.  And of course when I do get frustrated the guilt kicks in. I feel terrible for not being more patient when he is so sick. So you see this is a lose – lose situation I have here. Without patience I feel guilty and with patience I am still not getting any sleep tonight.
So Mommies and Daddies what are things like in your house when your child is sick?
