>Sick Baby


Originally uploaded by Mainline Mom

This little dude has not looked this happy in almost a week. We saw the doctor twice since his fever had not gone down which was a waste of time both times. Breathing treatments with Xopenex and Pulmicort help but oh what a pain. Last night he refused to sleep until 10pm, and then was up every couple hours. Which is still better than previous nights when he was up every hour. I think the fever is finally gone now but the snot and cough is still ever present.

In the meantime it’s raining out and I can’t take my sick baby out in public so it looks like the three of us are stuck inside today.

On the plus side, Nathan pooped in the potty for the very first time in months this morning, after asking to sit on the potty and trying three times. This is a miracle, and hopefully there will be no going back from here.

  2. >Way to go Nathan!


  3. >Yay for pooping in the potty! I’m so glad my girl is trained now. A super low compact trailer potty really helps, but I wouldn’t, um, recommend it.
