When it Rains it Pours

Alex is still sick. Poor guy - he just can't breathe. We've had a couple of really rough nights. He's up a lot, and has a hard time getting back to sleep. My friend Michelle stopped and got us some medicine on her way home form work on Friday and that has helped. He doesn't want to eat - has a hard time sucking on his bottle (since he can't breathe out of his nose very well) - and don't get me started on how he feels about getting his nose suctioned out!!! It's been loads of fun!

When he's feeling ok, he still likes to play and laugh, so that is good.

Then today. We went to church, had our fellowship dinner afterwards, went to a friend's house (they hadn't seen Alex yet and had a present for him), came home and napped (all of us - it was wonderful)

He woke up and screamed - for the next 4 hours. It looks like his top two teeth are about to make an appearance along with another bottom tooth. He is miserable!!!!!! I finally got him to sleep, so hopefully he sleeps all night.

Daycare should have TONS of fun with him tomorrow!

Infant Tylenol - every four hours. Your doctor can give you the correct dosage for Alex based on weight and age. It has made the first five of Andrew's somewhat bearable for him and me.
