The wee ones and I have fallen ill. Miles has had a high fever for five days, although it was down this AM and I'm hoping it will stay that way. Additionally, his nose is a faucet and he has a dreadful cough. I was getting frantic because the fever just kept going up, and the cough cropped up later with an increased fever but he is okay. I think he's getting better. He's also cutting his top four teeth. All at once. Awesome.
I'm terribly congested and achy and generally exhausted. Oscar has a runny nose and a bad cough. I've been giving him breathing treatments ever four hours in hopes we can avoid the breathing situation brought on by his last cold. We've also got the two year molars coming in. One popped through about two weeks ago and he working a second. This morning, Oscar was clutching his jaw in tears, saying, "My teeth! My teeth hurt, Momma! Help! Help!" Some Motrin did the trick.
Nelson has had a runny nose for three weeks. He went to the Dr. today for a physical and to have his blood drawn (just basic tests, as high triglycerides run in his family) and the nurse practitioner gave him antibiotics.
Antibiotics? Really? For a stuffy nose? I realize he's had it for a few weeks, but antibiotics? I just feel like that is pretty excessive. He has no other symptoms. I swear his doctor's offices give antibiotics out like candy. It's ridiculous.
Anyways, I'm cranky and feeling crummy and super behind on housework and laundry. Oh, the glamour.
