Well, Mommy now has a house full of sick patients. Daddy's come down with a sore throat/cold, and my cold has taken a turn for the worse in the last few days! All of this gunk & congestion has moved into my throat, my voice is so hoarse and puny, (it's so sad when I attempt to cry & can't!) and I'm having some wheezing in my breathing from it all.
So this morning, nurse Mommy packed me up and took me to the doctor.
He said he could tell from my voice that my air passages are inflammed, and I'm having some croup-like symptoms, but that my ears looked good. (alot of times babies get ear infections after colds) He gave me a steroid safe for babies and said it should help my breathing open up and help the inflammation, in addition to all the things that Mommy has been doing for me at home. (By the way, I weighed 19 lbs, 15 oz!)
Mmm... Mommy gave me a steam bath yesterday... So pray for nurse Mommy to hold our family together without getting sick herself! Hopefully we'll all be back to health in a few days!
