Puking, Fevers & Phlegm, Oh My!!!

My two biggest kids, and now the youngest, have been down with high fevers, vomiting and severe congestion, with coughing, since Friday afternoon. The doctor told us that we are looking at a "severe" head cold, with croup and laryngitis.So far, no antibiotics, but lots of Tylenol, Motrin, Mucinex DM, Sudafed and now, Phenegrin with Codiene. They are also sleeping with humidifiers and large bowls next to their beds. The rest of us are keeping the carpet cleaner and anti-bacterial soap handy. Please keep us in prayer.

(Did they get cultured for influenza? Sudden onset of high fever with respiratory symptoms sounds suspicious, especially if they didn't get flu shots or got them early in the fall.)

(Whispering quietly because I don't want to be giving "assvice" or questioning your judgement or your doctor.)

(By the way, I'm so sorry your kiddos are sick, and I hope they feel much better soon.)

Grossness! I'll be praying.

Your flowers are absolutely beautiful. How sweet!

After the last few weeks around here, I can totally sympathize with a houseful of sick kids! You are all in my prayers for a speedy recovery and that no one else (especially Mommy!) gets the crud!
