Sick Little One

Tiger is sick. He has had a cough for a few days and yesterday ran a little temo but seemed fine until 4 pm yesterday. His appetite is almost down to nothing and all he wants to drink is water. He is miserable. His nose is running, eyes watering, coughing, sneezing, fever (comes and goes) and this morning the ugly green monster reared his ugliness (from his mouth mainly).

I am alternating Tyneol and Ibuprofen. He also is taking a cough med.

I called after hours care and the nurse is suppose to call back, so I am waiting. The boys are napping, for now. I have our clothes ready and their bag too. Hubby will be in from church shortly and hopefully the ped can get our little one better. We are praying that Monkey does not get it too.

Please say a little prayer. If you have read my blog for a while you know that they were premmies and have underdeveloped lungs (still) and catch many things. Colds and such damage underdeveloped lungs no matter how healthy they appear from the outside. They also are still susceptible for RSV. Their immune systems are very low (still) and that is not a good thing.

Thank you and have a great Sunday!
Blessings!

I hope Tiger feels better soon. It's awful when your little one is sick, isn't it? You are the mommy, and you're supposed to make them feel better. Unfortunately, it doesn't work that way.

Poor kid! I hope he feels better soon. We're all sick with bad colds here, too. I guess it's that awful time of year. Sending prayers for the little guy.
