A Ray of Sonshine

Sonshine is sick with the croup that his sister had earlier this week. When Tiny Princess gets sick, she obediently takes her medicine and lays down to rest. But when Sonshine gets sick, he stubbornly refuses to do anything. If you try to give him medicine, he gags himself and pukes it right back out, even if he wasn't sick to his stomach. If you mix it in with food, you just get puke with food. And there's no persuading him. We tried telling him that all the bravest soldiers take their medicine, but it didn't work. Once, when he had a high fever that just had to come down before it cooked his brain, we threatened him with suppositories. He bent over. He would rather take his medicine up the butt than allow it to pass his lips.

It's gonna be a long, long day...
