Sickness update

To update any who were wondering.... Wilson is pretty much all better - both boys stayed home from school on Thursday and seemed to be getting better. The fever was gone, activity and appetite was back...So they went to school on Friday.

Still no smiles from this little guy though....

At about 10:30 I got a call from the school notifying me that Henderson was running a fever again and coughing really bad and just seemed sick. So my father-in-law picked him up for me and I called the doctor. They told me to bring him in, and the diagnosis...



Bronchiolitis aka Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV), it's only in the beginning form, so maybe he won't get any worse. Apparently it's pretty common and not too severe among babies his age. I've known several babies to get VERY sick with it, but they were all under 10 weeks old at the time, so maybe he'll get better in the next few days - any prayers are appreciated!

I am so sorry you guys are sick. If it makes you feel any better, Anna has the same thing right now, Mary Mac has a double ear infection, and so do I! Not to mention, Sam has been out of town all week and won't be home until late tomorrow night! Ugh! Anyway, we are surviving - barely!!! Mary Mac had this when she was the same age and then got the full RSV the next year. We bought a nebulizer and keep the meds on hand, thank goodness! Praying for healing for all of our families!
