My Poor Baby.

I tried and tried to prevent this from happening, but unfortunately he caught a cold. He started acting funny on Tuesday, and on Thursday I took him in for his first (of many I am sure) sick child visit. I know this sounds dramatic, but I was devastated. I just knew he felt horrible and there was nothing I could do to make it better. The MD confirmed that he has a little cold and things should clear up in 7 to 10 days. That seems like an eternity. We have been laying low at home trying to get him well giving him his prescription medicine, saline spray in his nose, using that bulb snot sucker like crazy, refilling the vaporizer, and putting him in the steam shower like 3 times a day so he can at least breathe easy for 5 seconds. Brad and I never used the steam shower until Anderson got sick, and it really has provided him some relief! Brad and I had some obligations this weekend so we have been tag teaming. Brad had a rotary fundraiser most of the day Saturday and then I had volunteered to watch the 2,3 & 4 year old class at church during the 11:11 service Sunday morning. He woke up feeling better this morning, all smiles (thank you lord!), and appeared to feel better but he was still coughing some. We did not want to risk him passing his cold to the other babies in the nursery so Brad stayed home with him. Overall, he has been a fairly easygoing sick baby and I am grateful b/c I know things could have been a whole lot worse!


not so happy in the exersaucer--actually not so happy anywhere this day

Happy, Healthy Boy!

He sure is cute! Looks like his mommy! I'm glad I saw you used the steam shower on your son. I was kinda worried it would be too much for my daughter. I just sat in our Steam Shower with her for a short time. I was surprised how much it helped.

Glad everything worked out for you B-)
