It couldn't last

The Wiz's stretch of good health, that is.

Since he started having SCIG infusions last fall, the Wiz has been remarkably healthy. He didn't have his usual bronchial infections or anything else.

The record stopped today. Last night, he started coughing, and coughing, and still hasn't quit. He has bronchitis AND croup (how do you get both?!) so no trick-or-treating for him tonight. He probably won't be able to go to our All Hallow's Eve service and party tomorrow, either.

The trick or treating tonight is a rant in itself. Some of the churches around here asked for Halloween to be moved from Wednesday because it's a church night. These same churches are having trunk or treat at their church parking lots TOMORROW night because a.) Halloween is evil!, b.) dressing up and walking to your neighbors house is evil!, c.) and begging for candy on Halloween is evil! However, apparently, dressing up, going to your church parking lot and getting candy without the exercise, is not evil! Whodathunk? And it is so very different from Halloween, too!

He is very cheerful, though. I bought him cupcakes, so he's not too unhappy about any of this. I'm not thrilled, but at least it's him and not Game Boy. That would be a disaster.

Aww. Hugs to The Wiz and I hope he feels better soon. I had chicken pox on my birthday one year, so I know how lousy it is to be sick on a "holiday."
