I kept Connor home from school today as he wasn't feeling at all well; he dozed upright in his chair all through our morning routine and even the car ride to drop Eden off. So I brought him back home and put him to bed, where he slept for around three hours. Then he perked up a little bit and I brought him out into the living room, where he watched the Broadway productions of both Phantom of The Opera and Les Mis-- both highly appropriate movies for a seven year old. Oh well; he loves the music.
With the exception of a brief break for tea with my mother after she popped by to say hello and choir practice in the evening, I spent pretty much the whole day cleaning and belting out the lyrics to the musicals. Connor seemed to be okay with my top-volume version of "Do You Hear The People Sing?" but the cats were extremely unimpressed. I'm pretty sure Cricket thought I was dying in some horribly agonizing fashion.
Tomorrow the little guy has a cardiology appointment; I hope he feels up to going! I have to schedule those things quite a bit in advance, and we need a renewal of the kid's heart medication. We also have our first respite care session tomorrow, and it would be nice if the little guy was feeling up to meeting somebody new. I'll be sticking around the house this first time anyway as it will be a new nurse, but I would imagine things will go much more smoothly if Connor isn't feeling crabby because he's sick.
