Strike 1,2, and 3

Chase woke up coughing all night long. He sounds terrible- it's that barking, goosey cough. I took him into the pediatrician's office today and he has...(drumroll, anyone?)...croup. Blech.

So he's on a round of steroids, which he manages to spit out every time I try to sneak some into his open mouth. Wonder what the effectiveness rate does when he doesn't actually take the medicine?

Ian has been quiet all day. He's been a little stuffy, too, so I just let him hang out on my bed in front of the TV all afternoon after our office/pharmacy visits this morning. I just gave him a hug and noticed that he is BURNING UP.

And my scratchy throat from yesterday and this morning has turned into a full blown runny-nose, headachey cold.

So, yeah. Fun times.

Oh man. That does NOT sound good. I hope Ian can make it to school tomorrow for the gingerbread houses. AND I'm sure you could do with the rest too.

My Vword is "spedi" in: I hope your family has a spedi recovery!

Praying for a speedy recovery.

Having sick kids never fun. Being sick with sick kids--down right exhausting. Being sick and pregnant, with sick kids--well, then it's time to call for back up!
