updates and sick kids

i know, i know, i went missing for a while. between christmas and working at two hospitals again, and new years and kids who are up all night i just haven't had the time or energy to write anything.

we all have this horrible cold thing that just sucks the life out of you, will has been sick for about a week and he is just getting worse, dave has been the most sick, but he is on an antibiotic now and rebounding, i would say i am mildly sick, sometimes i have a sinus headache and congestion, sometimes i don't. but i think the baby has croup, last night he started with this weird chesty cough, and a strange noise while he cried, he was still able to eat comfortably, and didn't seem to be in any distress when breathing, but i looked it up this morning and i handled it totally wrong. i should have done the steamy bathroom, call a dr right away thing, instead i just kept him near me and kept an eye on him, it got better as the night went on, and gone this morning, but with two sick kids we are going to the pede today.

christmas was wonderful, our families are way too generous, i have about 200.00 worth of stuff for the boys that i just put away for later.

ok i need to start calling the pede's office to get them in today, i'll try to post more later.

UPDATE
will has an ear infection he is starting antibiotics, they thought they heard something in ben's left lung, but called in the other doc and it was clear, no meds for him, just saline for the nose, mist for the congestion. here's hoping that doesn't happen again!

UPDATE AGAIN
ever heard of a kid who didn't like bubble gum medicine? my kid spit it all out even after i let him dose himself! so i put it in his chocolate milk, mission accomplished, he drank it all down!

Ooo, you're so sneaky with the chocolate milk! Great idea. Happy New Year! I hope everyone feels better soon! It sucks having a cold when you have a babies and toddlers to care for! I'm still getting over mine.... Feel better!
