Heebie Jeebies

Jaysen's got 'em.
Last weekend, it was Rylan who was barfing all over the place - and I mean all over the place in the most literal sense.

Since this afternoon, Jaysen's been puking, and has the 'rrhea (cha-cha-cha).
He's not complaining of a stomach ache, headache, or dizziness. He's really pale, and cold.
Not the chills cold, I mean cold to the touch.

I had him in a tepid bath, which helped the coldness, but I can't get him to drink tea, or anything else that may help ease his tummy.

At 6:30pm, he put himself to bed.
Right now he's watching the movie Up, and is just resting.

And what is it about "lucidity" and ASD kids when they're sick?
Does anyone else have experiences with that?
I know they've done studies on fevers and ASD- I find it bizarrely intriguing.

Aw. Feel better, baby.

i dont' know about ASD and fevers. But my pediatrician, who is a Steiner man, believes that every time a child has a fever, a bit more of their soul "settles down" into the child. Steiner doctors love fevers. And beat me dead, but fevers seem to go with developmental changes in my kids... Who knows eh?

I don't know what it is about sickness and "the calm" going hand in hand either, but it is, in some ways nice for a change! When Rory is under the weather he just wants to watch tv and cuddle with me! It's probably the only time I get to love on him.

When Jonathan lays down or puts himself to bed, I call the doctor because it is a sure sign that he's sick.
