Sick is bad, Cuddles are good

No one likes to see their child sick or feel bad, but let's all go ahead and confess.. extra cuddles can be nice.
Cameron has been feeling under the weather the past few days.  It started with a fever Saturday night and on and off again on Sunday.  He woke up from a nap Sunday, grabbed a blanket and made himself right at home on the couch. 
 I could tell he wasn't feeling well this morning, when I first called the doctor they were booked all day.  They called me back and worked me in at 2.  I almost cancelled it because he seemed to feel better but Steve rearranged his schedule so he could go get Cooper, I was pretty sure I wouldn't make it back to Charlestown with such a late appointment.  Glad I stuck with my guy cause as soon as we got in the car this little guy fell right to sleep and didn't let go of me the whole visit.  One throat swab later it was confirmed strep.
 Strep always calls for popsicles.

 As soon as we hit the car he was out again.  I drove around for a while waiting on his medicine thinking I would let him sleep a little longer.  We got home around 4 and at 4:45 he was still out.   Laying on the living floor with noise all around him.  I gave him some antibiotic and Tylenol tonight and he already seems much better.  Like I said, I hate the sickness but I do love the extra cuddles.
 This was hanging in our pediatrician's office.  I love it!
Tomorrow is my first leadership council for Community Bible Study which begins on Thursday.  I'm getting nervous!  My mom is watching Cameron for me tomorrow.  They provide childcare but I can't exactly bring a kid with me who just tested positive for strep.  I'm gonna me a nervous wreck on Thursday.
