I took him in for walk-in quick strep test, as A. had that last week and I didn't want to have us trading it back and forth; we didn't hear back so I'm assuming we don't have it (R. got checked when A. was diagnosed). This looks like a straightforward gastro bug. I've named what's happening as it happened and had T. repeat the words back to me so I could try to have him tell me if he thought it was about to happen again. He's been super good about getting into the bathroom when he has thrown up since the first incident, and very good about getting to the potty for diarrhea as well. I'd be pleased with _any_ six year old displaying that level of self-control/initiative, but T. has a diagnosis that makes things like this extra special difficult, which makes what he is doing Grade A Extra Stars Superhuman Cool.
He's been drinking ginger ale and eating blondies, crackers and similar. Part of the time he feels good enough to jump on the rebounder, but he's spending a lot of time on the couch wrapped up in the Disney throw. He asked to go to bed about an hour earlier than we usually start the bedtime process (a solid 2 hours before he normally has the lights out). Hopefully he will recover soon, but the nurses seem to think that as long as he doesn't have a high fever and he does keep liquids down he's probably ok.
