2 sick kiddos = 1 exhausted momma

she’s the sick one, but she’s giving me kisses! my litttle shrimpie…sweet terror

I love the fall…the leaves changing colors…boots, sweaters and cool crisp air.  I just hate when that cool air actually ends up being cold and swoops in out of nowhere.  One day we are at a high of 77 and the next, 40 something with lows in the low 30s. That’s just got “sick” written all over it.

Yup, Razz & Shrimp are both sick.  Started last Wednesday w/Razz complaining of headaches and then coming down with a fever.  Shrimp followed suit the next day.  Thursday, Razz starts a little cough and by Saturday, her throat was hurting a lot and Shrimp was also coughing too.  Fevers were on and off since Wednesday.  Took them to the doctor yesterday and Razz has Walking Pneumonia.  Shrimp doesn’t, but both will be nebulizing every 4 hours and on antibiotics.  Razz has the added dose of some steroid and then Singulair once all the meds are done (after 5 days).

Neither of my babies are sleeping well and so that means, neither is this BZMomma 😦  But, whatever, I just hope they get well soon.  Razz has been hospitalized 2x (2009 and 2010) for her asthma and even ended up in PICU back then.  I don’t want her back in the hospital.  GAH…I hate feeling so helpless when they get sick.  Shrimpie is more vibrant and playful today, Razz…just woke up so we’ll see.  I’m starting to feel an itch in my throat and I’m just really hoping there’s nothing more in store for me or the rest of our family…

 

Stay well!
