I was hoping that I was going to be the only one that was sick in the house. I don’t think that’s going to happen.
Poor JSL is all stuffed up, has nose crust, and is sneezing up a storm. I had thought it was teething causing a lot, but now I think he has his first official cold. Silly me for thinking that the excess saliva from teething was backing up and causing him to sneeze. . . . I think that’s part of it, but not the whole story. Last night he woke up gagging and curled up on my shoulder after to fall asleep. He was so sweet and wanted to be in my arms. He then went back to sleep until almost 6:00. He went almost 12 hours without eating (mommy sure felt that).
It’s all my fault that he’s sick since I was breathing on him when nursing. What stinks is there’s nothing I can do for him beside saline to moisten his nose (need to get him a bottle later) and use a bulb syringe (UGH). If he gets a temperature I can do Tylenol, but that’s it. Poor monkey, at least I was able to take Musinex which really helped me to break up stuff to get out.
I think the little monkey is waking up now. He can’t get settled and the noises from him are making my heart break.
