Yes I'm talking about the sickness in my house! Holy cow it's been 2 weeks now and nothing has changed. Well I can't say nothing, actually it's gotten worse. 2 out of 3 kids have had horrible colds that include CONSTANT coughing, fever, running noses, black circles under their eyes and pure crankiness!
Late yesterday I was able to get Jax into the doctor for a late appointment because he woke up looking like death was at our freakin door. He didn't improve throughout the day, he took a 3 hour nap and coughed so much that I just couldn't stand it anymore. We got to the doctor and he was concerned enough to tell me we had to do chest xrays because he suspected pneumonia! That was enough to freak me out right then and there. He said he sounded pretty "rattly" in his lungs. Our oldest son Shay has dealt with asthma since he was 1 1/2 years old and I just don't want to deal with another child and breathing issues; It's horrible! Luckily his lungs were clear and he gave us an antibiotic, he also told us that the cough would probably last for another week or so. Ughhhhh, I can't stand not being able to relieve him so I tried something tonight that I always tell people about but have never had the chance (or remembered) to actually try it. Vicks, not on his chest but on his feet. I have heard that it works wonders because there are so many pressure points on the bottom of your feet.
I'm a believer! His cough has practically stopped and I did it 20 minutes ago!!!! I am so happy and now lets hope we can both get some sleep tonight!
Let's hope the baby is getting better and not worse like Jax did. You tell me, how pathetic is this...................
