This morning, Matthew complained of a sore throat. Not seeing anything alarming, I sent him to school.
And hour later, he phones to tell me that his throat is really sore. I ask if there's anything else wrong, he says "no" so I tell him to stick it out until lunch.
About 90 minutes later (and before lunch) the school secretary calls to tell me that Matthew really isn't feeling well so Bruce went to pick him up from school.
He's complaining of a sore throat, more like the jaw area inside his mouth, but we see nothing. No fever, no cough, no sniffles... just his claim of a sore throat/jaw.
This is one of those times I hate being a parent. I hate that he is home, on the couch and I have no idea if there's something actually wrong or if he's just got a little sore throat that will be fine in a few hours. Am I being "played" by my 12 year old?
He's not usually one to want to stay home if he's not sick.... so I have to assume that something isn't right... I just have no clue what that is.
Being a Mom is hard work!
