Our sickies - Jan 24, 2007

We've found out why our little Abby has been so sick with fever, coughing, vomiting, runny nose and lethargy for the past week. She tested positive for RSV and Influenza b viruses yesterday! No wonder she has been so miserable. Oh, and she has an ear infection.

She seems to be doing a little better today. A low grade fever this morning. She's actually responding to me today... she fussed while getting her dressed. A very good sign! Her coughing is still terrible but she is able to rest more comfortably now. She's kept down her breakfast (1/2 of the usual amt) and she is wetting more diapers.

I think we are on the mend!

Will flu season ever end?

Josiah has also been ill but his symptoms were never quite as severe. His fever is gone although he still has a very wet and congested sounding cough. He's almost back to his fun loving, playful self. His little smiling face is just as cute with a green, runny nose!

Abby's IEP is tomorrow morning. We are hoping to figure out a way for Patrick and I to both attend. We'll let you know how it goes... we are sure it will be a productive meeting.
