Makes My Monday: Kota

Kota found a was cool I figure that was the reason the lizard didn't really put up a fight with the giant little boy picking him up and carrying him around for most of the afternoon that day.

Here are some pictures of My Kota man....these were from last week. Kota is now home bound for at least the next 2 days. Kota tested positive for Type A and Type B influenza...I had taken him into the Doctor's office to get checked for croup. Since late last night, he was barking like a seal...which usually means croup. Well, he DID have croup in addition to the Flu. After the Dr's visit, it was off to pick up medicine and call everyone Kota had been in contact with including the school nurse. The dr reminded me to inform the school just in case anyone else came down with the same symptoms. And as far as the nurse knows, Dakota's case of the flu is the 1st in his school.
So far, it's going good. I think it's a toss up between keeping him inside occupied and getting him to take his medicine as to which is the hardest task. Gummi bears are our current reward for taking medicine like a big boy. And the privilege to play some video games.

Lily was not used to having Kota home today...she kept telling Kota " My Mommy, My House...NO, Kota, NO!" I guess she enjoys having run of the house while he is usually at school. But I'm sure she will adapt for the next few days...hopefully, she won't catch anything that Kota has. She has been inhaling orange juice lately. I can't seem to keep it stocked in the house. But this new favorite juice may keep her healthy...I can only hope.

Oh I SOOOO hope Kota gets quick relief from the Tamiflu...and I LOVE that you are looking for the positive in the pediatric melee!
