Sick Day

See that sweet face?  See those tired eyes?  That's my (almost 16 year old) baby...that's bigger than me. He's home today.  He "doesn't feel."  He woke up with a fever and a scratchy throat.  I told him he shouldn't gargle with razor blades any more, but he wouldn't listen. So he's in bed getting better.  And I'm at work, counting down the minutes until I can go home at lunch and check on him. And shovel soup down his throat and do general "mommy" things that might not make him feel 100%, but they make me feel better. Please excuse my absence while I go make ginger tea for my baby.  Any natural, home remedy suggestions are welcome.  Hope to be back soon!


  1. Oh dear, I hope he feels better soon. I picked up my poor hubby from the hospital this morning and just made him a grilled cheese and tomato soup for lunch. The first thing he's eaten in a few days. It's really painful when he coughs. But I have my nurse hat on now. :-)

  2. Ginger tea is best, chicken soup is good...no iced drinks or dairy!
