On the mend

About 11 last night, Jack woke up from a many hour sleep looking like a new child.
He was a bit wobbly on his feet, but he was cheerful and ravenous. We started him with a sip of water. That stayed down well, so we offered him "thimbleful of Kambucha. That was OK, so we moved up to an ounce of chicken stock with barley water. He was fine and still hungry, so we moved up to a cup of homemade applesauce. After that, he was eager to try a half cup of "breakfast ice cream". (Basically a frozen smoothie).

He took a taste or two, but at that point an hour had passed and he was ready to sleep some more so we moved him upstairs. I don't think he made it all the way through the latest chapter of Hans Brinker before he succumbed to Morpheuses healing spell.

The storm has passed. We are, however, going to hole up this weekend and take care of refeeding the poor little guy and do our best to keep him quiet.

I'm also not convinced that he won't still be contagious for a few more days and this is definitely not one to share.

  1. I'm glad he's feeling better!
    That one (or some such stomach bug) seems to be sweeping the country.
    We've escaped it, thus far.
    Thank goodness.


We're happy to hear from you; thanks!
