School started about a month ago, which means that the lovely back-to-school viruses have been making their rounds. I hate colds, because Nolan gets sick even when it isn't cold and flu season. And when he gets sick, he is usually sicker for longer than the rest of us.
I was pleasantly surprised that Nolan didn't catch the latest bug, and whispered a quiet prayer of thanks, since his surgery is fast approaching. Then he woke up this morning. To say he was cranky would be a vast understatement.
We survived shopping at Wegman's, with a screaming child throughout the store. Then I took a closer look at him and saw the red circles under his eyes. By the time we got home, his nose was running. He felt a little warm. He is still very, very cranky.
Dear Mr. Cold Virus,
Please be gone by October 12, and please do not cause another infection in Nolan's (tubeless) ears.
Thank you very much,
