Sick, Sick, Sick!

Stay away from our germ infested house! Even some of the cats are sneezing! Freddy got a chest cold late last week. And then I got sick over the weekend. And then poor Marshall got sick on Sunday... complete with fever and croupy cough. He was up all Sunday night and the only thing that would calm him down were his tylenol drops. When I woke up on Monday I had already made the decision to work from home sinceI had no voice and was on my way to another lovely sinus infection. Marshall still had a bit of a fever so we call the doctor and they had us bring him in. The doctor confirmed his chest cold but he tested negative for a respiratory virus, which was good. The doctor thinks he just caught our cold, but since he had a fever he wasn't allowed to go back to day care until Wednesday.

Marshall was so pathetic on Monday. All he wanted to do was cuddle and slept all day on my shoulder. He was up again most of Monday night so Freddy took off today so that I could go into the office for work. The Baby Tylenol has been a life saver because it seems to help Marshall get some rest. When I got home I was greeted by a smiling, happy baby so I think the worst is behind us. He went to bed with no problem tonight so he is definitely feeling better. I'm looking forward to this weekend when it is supposed to be warm and we can take Marshall out and enjoy the outdoors.

Oh no! Feel better - all of you!
This weekend might cure the sickness too! It's supposed to be so nice starting tomorrow all the way through Sunday - Hooray!
I am blessed that Julianna has not had so much as a sniffle yet at 10 months... I dread the day that happens. (I hope I'm not jinxing myself).
