Turns out he's got flu. Sunday he had a temperature of 102. I quarantined him to the bedroom and the babies and I spent time playing in the nursery and downstairs. I compulsively checked for fevers all day. I ran up and down the stairs with tea, water, Ibuprofen, and I even let EJ use my fever-reducer cool gel patch things that I use for migraines. We ordered Chinese. I spent the night on a pallet in the babies' room. EJ asked if I felt like I was taking care of triplets. The flu is no fun. I just hope that none of us catch it. I've been carrying a bottle of Lysol and some hand sanitizer around with me.
Also, I found this yummy sounding recipe for Clove Coconut Tea, which is supposed to be great for sore throats. (Sore throat is the only thing EJ hasn't been complaining of, but I'm sure this will do wonders anyway). Basically you make some tea, add whole cloves, some honey and a tablespoon of virgin coconut oil. I can't wait to try it.
