No Waffles; Lots of Waiting

W was one post I had planned out.  I was going to make soft/crunchy, crisp/chewy, warm Belgian waffles from Liege.  These are the kind you'd buy at a street vendor downtown Brussels, a warme waffel or a gaufre chaud.


That post is not happening today, but will be written sometime in the future.  My youngest has been battling a fever hovering around 101 for the past three days, and today I took him to the pediatrician's office.  After one hour, two throat swabs and a nose swab, he's negative for strep and the flu.  He just has some sort of virus, and all I can do is monitor his temperature, keep him hydrated, and wait it out.  He's been needing a lot of extra love and attention, so I'm gearing up for another day.  He's actually in my lap right now as I type this.  I can only imagine how tired he has.  I'm exhausted, and I'm not the one with the 100 + degree fever.

  1. Oh no! I hate to hear of a little one being sick. I would rather be sick myself. Take care of both of you and get some rest. Will be thinking of you both. :)

  2. I do hope your little one feels better very soon. He needs lots of love and cuddles. Let's hope he doesn't pass it on to you.

  7. Oh nothing is as sad as when one of our children feels poorly. I hope he is soon on the mend...and nothing makes us feel better than having Mom right there with us.
    Good for you!

  8. I hope your little one feels better soon. I know the feeling when they are so sick and there is a limit what a parent is able to do.
