Still Under the Weather

I think Stephen's feeling his sickest (is that even a word?) today since getting sick on Sunday. He was up all night coughing and because of the coughing has been throwing up his feeds and of course is exhausted. He slept in the car all morning (when we for a drive to get out of the house) and then when we got home, wanted to sleep more on the couch. So I just put him back in his crib and its only 11:45. Poor guy! He still has a low-grade fever, but because it isn't over 101.5, there's no reason for concern. And the pediatrician said his lungs sounded good, so need to worry about pneumonia.

But I know he's feeling really crappy because he laid down on the couch this morning. He's never laid on the couch....ever! But I guess when you've been sick for 4 days, you start to perfect lounging on the couch! Thankfully, I'm feeling human again, so it's much easier to take care of him now that I'm no longer feeling like death. There has been a lot of Elmo and Sesame Street in our house the past couple of days. Thank goodness for PBS! But this virus is seriously nasty! I feel for anyone who has picked it up!

  1. We've been out of town on a "roadie" today so I had to check the blog before turning in. Glad to hear that Mommie is feeling better but sad to hear that the bug is still after our Superman. The first two pictures show that he has perfected the "classic male sofa reclining position". Happy to see that Mabel is keeping watch. Hope everyone is feeling better real soon.
