Snot, Puke and so much more

I jinxed myself. I committed that fatal error of voicing my amazement that our household has remained so healthy this year.

Kaelen is sick. As in not just a cold. What started out as an innocent runny nose on Wednesday night has now mutated into some nasty disease producing vomit that is fluorescent green (yes - snot balls), a bright red chapped nose that would give Rudolph a run for his money, diarrhea, a mild fever and the worst part: a wheezing, rattling chest that is impairing Kaelen from breathing normally.

I am most concerned about the wheezing and Kaelen's struggles for breath. Being as asthmatic who especially suffered bouts of both bronchitis and pneumonia throughout their childhood, I can identify what my poor little man is going through. I am keeping my fingers and toes crossed that when he wakes up this morning, that he will be showing signs of losing that aspect of this disease. The rest can be easily dealt with.

Ooooohhhh, your poor little guy! We'll pray for him. Poor baby! It's so hard when your kids are sick. You just want to take it all on yourself. If only you could! One time Ben had floresent green diareah (I'm not sure how to spell that). Thanks for your comment on my blog. Somehow I knew you would be with me on the potty humor!

Oh, I hope he woke up a little healthier today and that YOU don't get it. Nothing worse than taking care of a sick kid than taking care of a sick kid while being sick yourself.

I'm sorry to hear this, it sucks when they're little guys and so sick.

Sending good thoughts for a speedy recovery!
