Fevers and Vomit and Coughing...OH MY!

Oh, and snot. And breathing treatments. And breath holding. And ear infections. And no sleep. And worst of all...no eating (one full pound lost and counting).

Good news is that the lung x-rays do not show pneumonia, and we had a pretty good bedtime. Maybe tonight will be a better night.

Lurker here but I just wanted to say my son had severe breath holding spells like Eden has. I feel for you. Those things are horrible to watch and being a nurse I always felt so useless when he was having them. The good news is, he is going to be 4 in April and has not had one in a year. He used to have them 1-2 times per day, they actually thought he was having seizures. I wish you the best of luck. You have 2 beautiful little girls!

Oh...I am so sorry.

Check out the One Step Ahead website...they have this battery operated nasal aspirator. It's pretty groose but it seriously gets SOOOOOOOO much snot out. It is the best purchase I have made in a long time:)

Oh Billie! I am crossing my fingers that this passes quickly.

Oh Bummer! I hope they get better soon. Sorry they are sick and that you are getting no sleep. Will be sending healing thoughts and hoping they get well asap and then gain the weight back quickly. It's a hard one.

Hugs! Hang in there!
