I have trotted them back and forth to the doctor 3 times in the last 4 weeks and have also made a few phone calls to the doctor. I feel like a silly Mama, but 4 weeks is a LONG TIME! Each time I go the doctor tells me they have a cold. He said that they will most likely have a cold all winter. He said it won't be the same cold the entire winter. He said they will seem to be better for a day or two and then be 'sick' again.
I understand colds. Ok, a runny nose, a little cough, and some laziness here and there... so I thought.
These boys colds are OUT OF CONTROL! They have had 103.8 fevers off and on for the 4 weeks. They have runny and then stuffy and then runny and then stuffy noses, blood shot eyes, and have coughed so hard and so long that their big little heads turn as red as a tomato and they throw up just a little gunk. Which I guess the getting rid of the gunk is a good thing.
This is what we have been doing for the majority of the last 4 weeks. These were all taken today, but non the less it's been our most common positions for some time now.
Sometimes when we feel we can move off of the couch this is about as far as we make it.
Please pray for these handsome boys and this tired Mama! I feel so bad that they are so miserable. I wish there was more that I could do for them.
Tonight G had a fever of 104. We quick stripped him down and put him in an 'ice' bath. He loved every shivering second of it. It was hard to seem him shiver in the sink (I have a huge awesome sink that I was able to put him in by himself) but he had so much fun playing with the measuring cups and running water.
While G was in the sink, M kept asking for a bath. This is the first time he hasn't had a temp in a few days. So when G was done, I change the water so that it was nice and warm. He also had fun using the measuring cups.
