Fever and Body Chills

Hey there everyone, how y'all doing?  Some members of my family has been feeling down the weather this week.  I knew that something was wrong  with our son last Sunday because he was very quiet when we were doing our taxes at H&R Block  He also fell asleep which was  very odd so I knew then that the sickness was coming.  Came  Monday morning, he was so hot.  So I did not send him to school.

However, we took him to the church that evening because Ms. Burrito had her first confession.  He was fevered again that night and on Tuesday so he stayed home with me.  He felt a little better on Wednesday so he went to school.  He was very excited for Thursday as they have a Valentine's party.  Below are the treats that  we prepared for his  classmates.  
On Thursday morning, his fever was over 103 and he was shaking so I had no choice but to  keep him at home.  When my daughter came home,  she gave me her brother's homework and there was a note from the teacher expressing her concern about my son's absences.    I appreciate her concern  because I am very much concern about it  as well.

When a child is sick, there is nothing really you can do, but to keep them at home and take care of them. I was a little upset with the tone of the letter because she is thinking that my son is just having his separation anxiety issues, which isn't the case. The reason why I don't want to send him to school  is because I don't want the other kids to get sick as well. 

 I was going to let him go to school today but he vomited and was staggering when he tried to walk, he said he felt dizzy. Again, for the fourth time today, I did not send my son to school as I don't want him to be in agony. I know that he will not learn anything because he won't be able to function normally.  I know when my son is sick and when he is making excuses. 

I have so much anxiety about the issue that I did not sleep well last night. I wrote a note to the teacher and explained everything what is going on. Hopefully she'll understand the situation. 

 Being a parent is challenging. You deal with so many things everyday. It's frustrating sometimes when your child is being misunderstood. It's hard for parents to see their kids sick and it's much worst when someone doesn't believe it's the case. 

 I brought him to the doctor today. They tested him for flu and we will know the result maybe tomorrow. He is still congested and coughing but at least the fever is not that high anymore.
