Like "WOW!!! 988, bless you and your child. It must have been very scary at the time. It is never fun to have a sick child. I believe from my past experience as a mom, the best gift you can give your ill child is lots of love, taking time to read to them, even if they can read, some of their favorite things. When diet obviously has to change, it is terrible for the child, but as you begin to introduce new healthy foods, sometimes it helps to have them go grocery shopping with you and watch you fix it and eat it with them.
