My 10 year old son got viral fever.

He has high fever,headache and terrible weakness. It is hard to see a chatter box going quiet. Whole day he had lot to talk, but now he simply sleeps, the house has become too quiet and we are missing his voice. It's been 3 days and he still has fever. He has become more thinner with only diet of soup, rice and juices. Today he was craving for chicken. So despite him being sick, I prepared chicken for him. After a long time he relished his food and had his fill and I felt relieved myself. Then I started to worry, whether I should not have given. He himself was cautious so he ate little of it. When I write this, I recalled an incident. Once my husband had malaria and he was admitted in the hospital. He hardly ever get sick but when he gets sick at all then you have to directly admit him to the hospital, as it goes to the extreme. One day he suffered all the fever, chills etc. Next day, he wanted to eat meat. Despite me forbidding, he still ordered and ate chicken and he recovered quickly.

I am sorry your son is sick. I hope that he gets better soon. It' is terrible when children are sick and not as active as they usually are.
