Boy am I beat. Wesley started Wednesday with a fever and coughing. Thursday morning I took him to the doctor and come to find out he has allergies. I never would have thought. So both he and Josh now on Zyrtec. His cough is not any better. The tossing and turning at night along with the coughing has really taken it's toll on me. He wakes up wanting to talk and all I want to do is sleep. The doctor didnt give him anything for the cough. I sure wish she had. The Zyrtec has helped as far as making his nose run ;) which is a symptom he didnt have before going and his eyes look a whole lot better. If we could just get rid of the cough. His fever finally broke on Friday morning. I tell fever scares me to death. But the doctors now-a-days dont seem to worry that much about it. It maxed out at 102.9 on Thursday and by Friday afternoon it was down to 99. I had to give him Motron to help with that. I feel so bad giving my child all those meds. I myself dont even like to take them, but at least the fever is gone.
So it's been several rough sleepless nights here. Hopefully the cough will move on as well.
