My son (8) complained of a headache this morning so I gave him some decongestant and left him some Tylenol to take. He refused to take the Tylenol (the kind that melts in your mouth) and said he felt better. 30 minutes later I get a call from school to pick him up.
Now he's laying on the living room floor in tears, afraid to move because his head hurts so much. He's thrown up once already but still refuses to take the Tylenol. There's nothing else I can do for him if he won't take the medicine and I have little patience for him when there is a "cure" in his hand and he won't take it and then complains of the pain.
I can't force it down his throat. He hasn't eaten anything today and won't move off the living room floor (because of the pain). He's apparently having a migraine (been there, done that so I understand).

Next question overall
Did you know there were at least 351 schools closed due to the swine flu?
