Sigh. We had to bring Oren into the ER at Children's today because of his current illness. Poor guy was either inconsolable or super sleepy/spacy, and he was having wheezy breathing along with his really deep chest cough. Normally he rarely cries, and is such a smiley, happy dude that it just broke my heart to see him like that. Nothing they could do for him though - and we're on high alert for worsening symptoms. Apparently the illness should peak tomorrow, then he'll start getting better. I don't know how I'll sleep tonight.
I'm SO done with illnesses. DD had this same thing a few days ago and had a 104 fever and laboured breathing, and a super high heart rate as well. We brought her to Children's ER on Valentine's Day (but of course, her fever broke while we were there, and the night air helped her breathing, so we left before seeing the doctor.) Today was the first day I left the house in 4 days. DH and I are both sick too, but with just plain old colds. Well, DH has a man-cold.
DD (approaching 3) asked me tonight "Is cold and flu season almost over, Mama?" LOL.
