I woke up around 10am to start burning some DVDs to take out to my son at school when we took his medications and DVD player to him.
Unfortunately, shortly before 2pm, we received a call from the school saying that our son was in the infirmary with a fever, and they thought he might have an ear infection. We called our doctor to see if we could get an antibiotic prescribed, but they would not call in a prescription without seeing our son. So we scheduled an appointment with our doctor for Saturday morning, and we headed out to the school to pick up our son after only five days of being back at school.
We walked into the infirmary and saw him lying in bed underneath a blanket. As soon as he saw us, he perked right up and asked us how many points he earned for being in the infirmary. My son loves earning points for any time he does anything like go to school. Then he proceeded to tell me which bridges we would cross on our way back to our house from the Eastern Short back to Bowie.
Monday, we had a terrible time taking him back to school. He is now home again after only four days back at school when he was scheduled to be there for five weeks. Granted, he is sick this time, and he needs to see his doctor, but it doesn't make it any easier. Depending on how he feels, I hope we will be able to take him back to the dorm on Sunday. If not Sunday, then it will probably be Monday. Either way, I expect another difficult day. Wish us luck.
