One of my favorite things about your thread is watching the title change! I hope E is feeling better, I hate it when my kids are sick. I have one home now with a sinus infection and he is frustrated with missing Jr. High. He can go back tomorrow, but our school is being extra cautious about kids being sick and swine flu and possibly spreading infection, so, we have a Dr.'s note and he will just carry that around with him until he has been on medication for a few days. I can understand the school's cautious protocol since there have been some swine flu cases at school - it's just hard for Jeff, since he hates to make up classes. Kinda makes me wonder why we decided to do a trip NOT on a school holiday??? OH yeah, we were avoiding the crowds. Echinacea, orange juice??? I would suggest chicken noodle soup - but, how about tofu noodle soup??? For days like yours TV is a good thing. Relaxing, and he can lay down and rest while watching. Good luck!
