Harry Potter marathon

Friday R1 came home from school and went straight for the couch to lay down. I knew right off the bat he didn't feel good.

He said he couldn't get warm and I could see he had the chills. I checked his temperature and he didn't have one but he still felt warm so I gave him Tylenol.

He ended up falling asleep and staying there most of the night until he got up around 2:30AM and he was burning up. Another round of Tylenol and some throat spray and back to sleep he went.

Saturday morning I woke up and had that mothers intuition where I knew R1 needed to go to the doctor. So off we went to Urgent Care.

Sure enough, his throat was red and infected. And since R2 had strep three weeks ago and two weeks ago I had a throat infection, the doctor gave him some antibiotics and a steroid pack.

When we got home he went straight back to the couch and got under the covers. Then he asked if we could have a Harry Potter marathon.

I don't think I could answer YES to him fast enough. We love Harry Potter. And since R1 got both part 1 and part 2 of The Deathly Hallows for Christmas our collection was now complete.

We snuggled up and watched all eight movies. It took us two days but we did it. And we enjoyed every minute of it.

Oh and by early Sunday afternoon R1 was back to his old self.

Glad he's feeling better! Sounds like the perfect thing to do when not feeling up to par. :)
