Sick

Sick

Our whole house is sick.  Nathan and Steve were the first to get it and have had a cough for going on two weeks now.  I got it about 10 days ago, Anthony seems to have a mild cough, and some how Grandma is staying healthy.  The worst part about me being sick is the girls also got sick.  They are congested at night which makes it hard for them to breath and eat.  We’ve been using saline mist on their noses and that seems to help a little bit but it’s hard to watch them struggle through eating at night.  I’ve been having coughing fits around the 5 am feeding making it hard and sometimes impossible to go back to sleep.  During the day we all seem okay.  Steve has been back at work so it’s just Grandma and myself doing the night time feedings.  It’s been pretty consistent at 2 1/2 to 3 hours between feedings.  We’re hoping they’ll go longer once they feel healthy….I don’t know what I’m going to do once my mom has to leave.  I’m already starting to get nervous about it.
