We are all sick! Yes even the baby is sick! There is something so heartbreaking about seeing my sweet little girl cranky with a raspy voice and a nasty cough! We went to the doc on Wednesday and was told Dalton has bronchitis and Sunday had just started her cold! I know that days 3-5 are normally the worst with most cold viruses and today is day 3 for Sunday and she slept most the day only waking to eat and cough… by the evening though she seemed to feel a little better and played on the floor with her mat for a while, she even let me give her infant Zarbees which was great because the first time she spit it all out and then threw up from crying and coughing. ‘I will be taking her back in on Monday and I really hope she is on the mend instead of getting worse but I still want the doc to check on her and make sure she’s not getting worse!
Poor Dalton always gets so sick so fast! He’s had a fever on and off for 5 days it peaked at 103 and today it got all the way up to 102! He is on an antibiotic, prescription cough meds (at bed time only) his asthma meds, and a steroid and abuterol mixture in his nebulizer! Even though the doc said he had the beginning signs of bronchitis at the appointment he said his ears were clear, which before tubes his ears would have been the first thing to get infected so I think they are doing well. However, he did cry out saying his ear hurt so badly and we ended up giving him some Tylenol for the pain. Today he laid around a lot and took 3 naps, at the end of the evening he told me he was tired and got up and put himself in bed. It was cute and so sad all at the same time! I feel so bad for him but I gotta say being able to give him meds and vitamins at least lets me feel like I’m trying to make this cold easier for him unlike poor Sunday who can only suffer through it!
I got a nasty cough and by the end of the day I feel like total crap but other than that I feel fine which is great considering I got 2 little that need my full attention. I did have a few rough days but for the most part I think I’m on the mend just a lingering cough to annoy me… I’m not sleeping very well because I keep getting up to check on all the kids and half the night I’m dozing with Sunday in my arms and pillows to keep us propped up and unable to move from side to side.
Thanksgiving came and went and luckily I did not have to host this year and with all the left overs I do not have to worry about cooking for the next couple of nights!
Oh and Sunday was the cutest little turkey on Thanksgiving day!
