As I am typing this, Ella is coughing through her nap. She woke up with a runny nose yesterday that has now drained into her throat causing the coughing spasms. She’s had explosive diapers, too, so I’m blaming it on teething for now. That second tooth is still pushing up and all she did was want to chew on teething rings yesterday. She didn’t seem interested in eating or nursing much and always seemed to improve after some teething tablets. Tylenol was our friend to get her through the night ( I only had to go into her room a couple of times to help find the pacifier or roll her back over as she got tangled in the blanket) and she woke up happy, but the cough has worsened. Pray for my baby–it’s so hard to know what to do for her when she can’t blow her own nose or spit the stuff out. The bulb syringe/nasal aspirator works, but she hates it. Stevan calls it the turkey baster. She just cries and is starting to fight me when I use it because her little nose hurts. It’s hard to watch your little child suffer through these life hurdles. I know it only gets worse, but I still hate it.
Stevan is sick, too! He threw up last night and spent much of the evening in the bathroom. His stomach is still upset. He hasn’t felt “right” in his stomach this whole week. He’s going to the doctor at 11 today. Pray for him so he can survive the all-nighter this weekend with the teens.
I’m fine–but still in my pajamas due to the other demands in the household. We’ll see if I get anything more done besides this post today.
Ella is moaning now–maybe the nap thing won’t really happen today. Yea rah!
