Kodiak’s Sick Days

posted in: Kodiak My Little Grizzly | 5

I hate it when my little guy gets sick.  I’m never quite sure what to do because the poor little guy can’t really tell me. He just lays there. And then sometimes he cries.

He will not stop crying today....

But yesterday when his PCA was getting him ready for school his supper came up. My Symone called me and told me but I was walking into work. She was home still from school with that concussion headache still. Then the dizzy stuff when she’s up and around. I told them I would go see. We have been such short-staffed at work that I could not come home. When he’s like this we blow up an air bed put beach towels on it and put him there.

He can’t run to the rest room or find a bucket to get sick into like most people.

IV time… for my sick little guy!!!

So we just watch him and then try our best and then clean him up. We have loads of laundry when he gets sick. We use medicine syringe and give him small amounts of ginger ale and Tums to help settle his tummy then we start with Cheerios later.  Once we get a little something down we give Tylenol for fever. But this is hard because the poor little guy can’t say what is wrong. He gets dehydrated and then we have to go to ER to get IV fluids in him.

A couple of months ago in ER getting IV fluids... Poor Baby!

So when I got home he basically was curled up in a ball in a chair and did not want anything. I got PJ’s on him and got some things in him including his meds. He fell asleep on the airbed next to the fireplace like a puppy curled up on a bed. Later we took him and his airbed upstairs. This little guy did not sleep well. He would wake up and cry go back to sleep. Wake up and laugh and giggle and be wild. Then go back to sleep.  Then he began banging things around. None of us slept well at all. I must have crashed because I suddenly was jarred awake and realized it was 10:30 this am. Colt was supposed to get up and I was supposed to drop him off with friends at 9:30. Opps! I found my phone and had a text from them. Shoot! Sorry everyone. Sorry Colt. He got up and fed Kodi and gave him his meds. But all morning Kodi has been crying. He’s curled up in a ball and crying. I held him and he cries. I rub his back and he cries. I rub his head and he cries. The weather is rainy and will snow later they say but we lost some of our snow because of the rain… maybe it will be freezing rain? This could be some of the crying reasons or it’s because he’s sick and something hurts. (Top Photo)

I’m sorry my little Kodiak that I don’t know what to do.  I miss your laugh and wish you well. In the meantime I’m here for you. I’m home today. Please don’t push me away.  I love you my precious little boy and I can’t stand to see you in pain. I would even take you being like this… quiet, peaceful and resting with occasional giggles. I miss your eyes too little man. But at the very least you have the most amazing hair and eye lashes.  xxooxx’s

He loves these soft blankets. This one is his sisters. Maybe this is the reason for the smile. He has her's and it makes him happy.

I want him at least looking like this... sleepy but a smile on his face

  1. Poor little sweetie. I can’t imagine how worrisome that must be. Hope he gets better soon.

  2. He is such a cute little guy. I took the pictures of him laying on my blanket. He wasn’t feeling good that afternoon and being so sweet. He curled up and put his head on my lap and was just laying there. He would laugh and smile and move around a little. I looked at him and thought it would be a cute picture of him. 🙂

  3. Sorry bro I wish u were better
