Someone at Nuvo convention had some wicked virus or bronchitis, and, of course, Julian picked got it. Fever, coughing…whole shebang. We’ve gone to the doctor, gotten antibiotics, and gotten a bit of relief.
However, he had to miss the first of four days of tap choreography for the upcoming spring concert. He was bummed. He slept 18 hours one day and 16 the next. Then off he went to tap for four hours. The next day he tapped for eight hours. He was tired and his feet hurt, but no fever. He was still coughing, but that’s to be expected with bronchitis. Then…day four…he became tired after a few hours, and when he got home after five hours of hoofing he had a fever again.
No school for Julian today or dance, for that matter. He stayed home coughing rather than tapping. The doctor says she isn’t convinced it’s bronchitis at this point. Lots of people are complaining their antibiotics aren’t working…us included.
I called our herbalist. She says its viral. Poor Julian is back on a regiment of about 20 herb pills every few hours. Something should kick in soon, at least we hope so.
He hates missing dance. He thinks he missed partnering class. I thought it ended two weeks ago…I could be wrong. We’ll see how he feels tomorrow. I think another day off would be a good thing.
More choreography next weekend. Unfortunately, it starts on Friday night. Julian was invited to a Sadie Hawkins dance at a neighboring school. He can’t go, because he would get there after they close the doors. He’s bummed.
The things boys give up for dance.
