Oh, Crappy Day!

That pretty much sums up my day yesterday. It started at midnight, as Tuesday was slowly creeping into Wednesday. The baby woke up crying. She felt warm, but nothing too serious. She's had a cold for a few days now and a stinky cough too. Somethingwas bothering her though and I couldn't figure out what it was. She was fidgety, restless.

My husband and I took turns holding her, comforting her, trying desperately to get her back to sleep but every time we gently lowered her back into her crib she would cry. This went on for 2 hours. Finally, he said, "I'm just going to give her a bottle." Even though she wasn't hungry, it was enough to help her fall back asleep.

The next morning, Big J had school and thankfully Little J had a doctor's appt. It was just supposed to be a check-up but I asked him to listen to her chest. The last time we were there he heard her cough and metioned RSV. I had never heard of it, but apparently it's a pretty serious virus.

Everything sounded clear, so it seems like it's just a regular cold. I just feel bad for her because it seems like she's had it all winter. He did say that she has Thrush, something else I have never heard of. On top of all that, she had to get a shot so Little Miss J was not a happy camper.

I felt like I was running around all day yesterday and I had no time to do anything I wanted to. I really should start waking up earlier, before the kids get up, and try to get some stuff done.

I'm bummed too because I didn't get a chance to participate in the Thursday Theme over at Stacey's. Maybe I'll get a chance later to post a picture.

Here's hoping today is a slow day. One of those days you stay in your pj's all day!!

Be thankful it wasn't RSV. Squeaks had it a year ago and it was the scariest thing ever! She's still got respiratory problems from it.

Hope Little J feels better soon!
