Colt update: still sick

I took Colt back to the doctor today. It worked out well, our babysitter had the flu so he had no place to go today which left me or Dave and Dave had a big day at work so I stayed home. He was still not feeling well and he had been pretty cranky all weekend. He has had a couple small fevers, coughing, runny nose and sleeping ALOT!! He has been sleeping 13-14 hours at night and then three naps a day which is very unusual for him as he had been only taking about one nap for the last week. So I called this morning when I knew that I was going to be home anyway and figured it would not hurt to get him checked out. Basically his doctor just told me it was a different virus than the last one he had and we had to let it run its course. Right now there is no infection so there is nothing they can give him and hopefully it will go away on its own. He has been so unhappy these past few days, I feel bad for him and just wish he could start feeling better! This month is not starting out so great after all.....

Oh Carolyn...it looks like I spoke too soon. I'm sorry Colt is still sick. I don't know what your pediatrician says, but whenever we take Taylor in, ours calls it "daycare syndrome". Every child that goes will have a new virus every other week (roughly). They say it's really good to build up their immune system though....so I guess there is a bright side! Take care and I hope he gets better soon!
