A word from the silence…

Last week was VBS at our church. I was in the nursery watching workers kiddos including my own 11 month old Rascal. On Wednesday, day 3, a child had a non-stop faucet or clear runny nose and a faint cough. On Thursday, day 4, a second child had a repetitive cough. On Friday, the day after VBS ended my Rascal had a runny nose, and by evening a cough.

Now, days later he has a horrid congested cough. Runny nose with no end, and is just a clinging whimpering mess. He had two days of a moderately high fever topping out at 103.9 one night. Now he’s steady at 99.9. A few days ago, I watched in near slow motion horror as OrangeBlossom in her three year old loving self kissed him on his clear wet nose. As of last night she is following in full symptoms currently sporting a 103.5 fever. But her attitude is still good as long as it’s not night. I did not like the sound of a croupe cough last night, I hope that was just a fluke of congestion. I really don’t want to repeat that with another child after experiencing it so much with AppleBlossom.

*sigh*

  1. Update: Now all three kiddos are fevered, runny nose, and irritable. It’s a lovely day. Storming and pouring down rain too.
