It seems that we’ve all managed to catch Jonny’s cold to some degree. I just had a sore throat that fortunately lasted only 1 day. Mark spent all of Saturday sneezing, but seems to be getting better. Isaac woke up this morning coughing and saying his throat hurt and begging to stay home from school, but he seems better this afternoon. (We did keep him home, but tried to make it as boring as possible so he won’t be too anxious to stay home unless he really IS sick in the future!) Jonny still has a lot of head congestion and may actually need antibiotics with how long this has lasted.
Ben has had a runny nose for the last couple days, but today he’s crying during his feeds which is unusual. I just checked his temperature and it was 101.2 rectally. He just fell asleep after a dose of Tylenol and I am feeding him at a slower rate than usual (it’s nice to be able to feed him while he sleeps). I hope this is just a virus that will run its course.
Mark went to get his flu shot today. He took Isaac with him to see that it wasn’t too bad. We were hoping to talk Isaac into getting his today too, but he (not surprisingly) doesn’t want to. That’s OK because both Jonny and Isaac are scheduled to get their flu shots the day after Thanksgiving. Here’s what Isaac had to say about shots:
