I fear we are knocking at the door of the house of sick. So far I think only Lucia has stepped through the doorway.
Here are the facts:
Everyone seems to feel fine; they are all eating well.
No one is running a fever.
Since Thursday or Friday the three have been coughing.
These aren't ugly coughs.
Since Saturday, Lucia's nose has been red.
Since Saturday I've had to aspirate Lucia several times a day as she has had copious amounts of stuff in her nose. (She hates this.)
Since Saturday Lucia cries out when she is lying flat because she can't breathe comfortably.
Monday morning her left eye is swollen and a little red.
I have been dreading our first experience with illness, and I am still not sure this will really count. We are two weeks shy of six months old; I really wanted to make it six months without them catching anything. But, "they" say getting sick is what helps children build their immune systems. As with anything in life, there are positives and negatives to what ever situation you are in. Hopefully this will just be a short visit to the house of sick.
We hope you are feeling well.
