It must be cold season....

Carson brought home the first cold of the season from preschool at the end of last week. He started off with a nice runny nose that turned into a cough. My normally energetic boy morphed into a couch potato that sounded like a chain smoker. Then he was such a nice brother and shared his cold with Eli. I thought I was going to die when those first coughs came from Eli in the middle of the night. Colds and micropreemie lungs just don't mix. Carson has asthma and Eli has BPD so both boys are on Albuterol treatments for just a simple cold. Thank God for Tylenol Cold and Cough, Delsym cough syrup, and lots of cuddle time with mommy! My precious boys also shared the love with me and I'm now sitting here with a great head cold too. At least I can be sympathetic, or is it empathetic?

I'm off to my American Heart Association BLS for Healthcare Provider CPR renewal course from 6-10 tonight. Hopefully I bring enough tissues and I don't mess up in my drug-induced state of mind. Can someone please tell me how my husband who I've known for over 5 years NEVER gets sick?

Awww... I hope your boys (and Mommy) feel better soon. Take good care of them and yourself!

break out the purel girlie!
you have at least one more month before the "official" start of RSV season...doncha just love how smart that virus is?
seriously, i hope eli does qualify for synagis? if not get all his docs on board to recommend it for him.
we kept our little man healthy with only one episode of bronchiolitis and re-hospitalization for two winters and i totally credit the synagis and using gallons of purel.
take care

Is Eli doing any better? I read your post on my blog and am worried. I hope so!

It sure is going to be a long second winter for our little guys.
