Sick Sick Sick

Well we are getting sick again, and I am never leaving the house.  I told my husband that the parties we went to over the weekend were prime breeding grounds for some kung foo goo, I knew the boys would get something.  I know we can’t live our lives in a bubble, and I am not a paranoid person.  But I just hate that almost every time we go out to gatherings one of them comes home sick and then we are all sick.

The scariest part about this time, is that one of my boys has a high fever and he is under tons of blankets and still shivering.  I always worry especially since when he gets sick his asthma kicks in.  With all of these swine flu cases it always concerns you as a parent.  I’m praying this is just a passing virus.   Off to take care of my babies!

Fever Fever, My Monkey is Sick

Well it is that time of the year, and we have been somewhat lucky on the sickness front.  But, as they say, all good things must come to an end.  Monkey is sick with a fever and runny nose and I have been sniffling all day.   I am praying that this is just a quick moving virus but I should be so lucky.   Usually with monkey, he will get the runny nose and fever and it rapidly turns into a situation where he is in need of a breathing treatment.

I hate to see my little bubs sick, you can just see it in their eyes.  They get that glassy look that my mom always told me I used to get when I was sick.  They rarely complain but you can just tell they are miserable.   After I gave him motrin his temp went down to about 100 and he was playing but not his boisterous self.  It is going to be a long night so I am off to bed because I know I will be up at least a few times to prop my little guy up so he can breathe!   Humidifier is going full blast, and the nose drops are on hand.  Off to do mommy high alert duty!
