Sick Baby

You are currently browsing articles tagged Sick Baby.

Adam had been sick the last couple of days. His nose was stopped-up so bad he couldn’t breath…especially at night. He would wake-up every hour or two unable to get back to sleep. Cindy and I would suction his nose and rock with him until he drifted off to sleep, only to do it all over again a short while later.

After a night of little sleep, Adam seemed to be doing a little better. We thought the worst might be over and the poor little boy was recovering. Not quite. He woke from his nap with goopy eyes he was unable to open. We thought he probably had pink-eye. We were right!

Poor Adam

He also had double ear infections. Alex followed in his footsteps just two days later…

What a week!

I’m in Jacksonville, Florida, on business this week, and as I deplane, I get a text message from Cindy that said she was at the ER with Alex, who had spiked a 103.5º temperature. Cindy and Alex have been battling this fever for the last 3 or 4 days, and every time he starts to perk up, his fever knocks him back down. They were at the ER for about 3 hours while the doc ran some tests, no flu, but it was likely something viral that’ll just need to run its course. Hopefully, it’ll be over soon. Cindy has hardly gotten any sleep the last couple of days, and has had to care for a sick baby, and his brother! She’s amazing!

I feel terrible that I can’t be there to lend a hand…she sure could use the help, and support. Thankfully, this is our last week apart.
