The nurse just called and said difficult child has a stomach ache and headache "in his eyes." I told her he gets migraines and food sensitivity headaches and he's probably been eating crummy foods. I just discovered that he'd eaten half a container of Reddi Whip (my fault, I should have never purchased it, and disguising it in a brown paper wine bag didn't work this time). So that's why he had a stomach ache the day he left for camp. I suggested to her to give him another 1/2 clonidine, along with-the Motrin she had suggested, and some applesauce. I told her that I knew he had already eaten a deep fat fried chicken sandwich with-a bun on Sun. when we dropped him off (they feed the families on drop-off day), and pancakes for breakfast. I suggested Rice Crispies or anything with-rice, to soothe his stomach. She put him on the ph with-me and he was irritable and wanted me to come get him. He has never asked me that before, in all the yrs he's gone to camp. Whew. He told me it didn't sound like I cared. He said he had a fever of 99.7. I said I was in bed in my pjs and it would be nice if he could try to get some sleep and the nurse could call me in the a.m. He was very irritated that I said that and reiterated that it sounded like I didn't care. I told him I did care. I got the nurse back on the ph, and she said his temp was 98.5. Sigh. She said she wouldn't call me back unless he got unruly, and I said the clonidine should help. He's over an hour away, almost in NC. Do I ... or don't I ... take my cell ph to bed ... ? I hate to sound unsympathetic, but I know darn well he's eating whatever he pleases, not eating when he should be eating, not drinking any water in the heat, and not sleeping. Arg. I'm supposed to pick him up Thursday. He only had to make it through two more days. It's only a 5 day camp. Double argh.
