Jack is a hands always in and around his mouth type of kid. That's just not good on the germ front, not to mention his suppressed preemie immune system. I feel so bad about him getting ill. I wish I could watch him every second while he is at school, ready with the hand sanitizer. But I know that at some point, we have to let him out of our germ free bubble. It's very hard to knowingly throw caution to the wind in regard to germs. Preemie parents are taught early on about germs and sickness prevention. About the deadly time of year coming up known as cold and flu season. Oh how I hope and pray our boy has strong enough lungs to withstand what he is about to face!
Because Jack was sick yesterday, he missed his second day of school. I hope we can make it tomorrow, but part of me wants to wrap him up in our home and never let him go.
