Yesterday evening, Taliesin started running a fever and complaining of being dizzy. He also seemed totally out of energy. He's had a sore throat and a headache off and on for the past few days. So off to the doctor we went today. The doctor tested him for influenza and strep, which both came back negative. Because of his symptoms, she also wanted to run a mononucleosis test. So now I'm awaiting the call telling me if this test is positive or negative. Poor Taliesin started crying when the doctor told me if the mono test is positive, he will not be able to take karate for six weeks (the spleen enlarges and any kind of bump or hit could cause it to rupture). I hope it's negative and just a small, simple virus (if there really is such thing). Now Nathanael is running a fever, coughing, and saying he has a sore throat. Ughhh. Taliesin is asleep right now. Nathanael just woke up. I took off from work tonight to watch and wait for the test results.
