The boy's fever is gone. He still has the coughing.
The baby girl's fever is low. It comes and goes, but seems to be lingering. She has coughing and a runny nose. Last night she vomited a bit from the coughing. She doesn't sleep well - usually has to be held in my arms. Yesterday she slept from around 6PM until 8:30AM (off and on, but no active awake times).
The big girl has been fever free for about a week now. She still coughs occasionally and has a runny nose. Her energy level is well below normal and she sleeps a lot.
The Hubster and I are relatively symptom free at the moment. I'm noticing my cough is increasing again and I'm running on nearly no sleep.
- A 40 something mama meandering through life an 8 year old girl (the big girl) who is a ball of lightening and a 5 year old girl (the baby girl) who brightens our lives with her smiles. I'm grounded by my 40 something husband and partner (the hubster) whose quirky mannerisms brighten my days. Our family is rounded out with with an eclectic 21 year old boy-man (the boy) who I hardly ever right about now since he's off starting his own life.
I've been a single mama, married mama, divorced mama, career mama, SAHM, and WAHM. There was a short time of my life when I wasn't a mama, but that was a LONG time ago!
I hold an AA, BS, and MA and most say I'm wasting them by devoting my intellectual capabilities and energy in the nurture of the wee ones that I've been entrusted to raise, but there is nothing else I'd rather be doing these days. :)
