Kids Illnesses

Connor was under the weather over the weekend. He had a fever and was generally listless and did not do much more then lay in bed or on the couch.

Being Autistic he does not relay how he is feeling in words. This really makes you worry that your correct in him having a cold and not something more. Add to that the fact he is one tough little guy. I mean it takes something very painful to elicit tears from him.

keeping him hydrated was tough as he did not want to drink. Telling him its important would get him to take a drink. buying him Gatorade (a treat) helped out quite a bit.

You always hate to see your kids not feeling well. Not being able to confirm how they are feeling verbally makes it worse.
