Sick Sick Sick
We've been sick in our house for the last 2-3 weeks. Well, it's mostly the little boys that have been sick. I started out with a cold a few weeks ago. By the end of the week Sky had gotten it. So there we were constantly wiping our noses and coughing our lungs up. But about a week later we were feeling much better and not coughing so much. Then Sage got more stuffy then usual and a little runny nose, runny and goopy eyes, and a slight cough. But he never seemed as bad as Sky and I had been. So we kept the humidifier going in the boys room to help both of them and did the best to relax and get better. For Sky that ment he got to play lots of games on the computer, and for Sage, not as much tummy time since it was hard enough for him to breath without him smashing his face into the floor. By Sunday everyone seemed to be doing much better until we sat down to dinner and I looked at Skyler's eyes. They were bright red with green goop in the corners. He didn't complain until I cleaned them up, then it was constant rubbing and crying that they hurt. We finished dinner then headed to Kids Care. Of course Layton's was closed so we had to venture down to the Bountiful Kids Care, but no visit with Aunt Diane since it was her day off. By time we got there Sage's eyes were a little goopy again so we had both boys looked at. Both have pink eye, and both got eye drops. The Dr asked if we had any other concerns. I mentioned their coughs, but said they seemed to be getting better. She said to keep up the humidifier and keeping their noses clear. So we headed home. I got the boys ready for bed while Josh went to the pharmacy for the eye drops. We gave the boys their eye drops then sent them to bed. (Can I just mention eye drops with a 3 year old and a 5 month old is quite the adventure.) And thats when it started. Skyler began coughing again. And Sage coughed a few times before falling asleep and his sounded deeper than it had before. So we've been watching them. Still running the humidifier, and pushing fluids with Sky. And the only thing that has happened is they've gotten worse. Sky coughed all through the night last night and at 4am made a weird sound so I went in to check on him. He was awake, so we went in the bathroom and ran the hot water to make it nice and steamy and cuddled to try to soothe his cough. It might have helped a little. He did get a few more hours of sleep before being up for the day. Then this morning right after i finished feeding Sage he began to cough and threw up his entire feeding on himself and I. So off to the Dr we go this afternoon. The only good thing is Sky hasn't been having asthma attacks this winter with his colds. But with him having asthma I worry about him when he gets sick. So we'll see the Dr today and hope for the best!
