On the Mend

Sarah's little cold was passed to Mama! The bad thing about being a stay at home mom is that even when you feel like you've been hit by a truck and your head is in a vice, you still have to work. No sick days or holidays here. Although it wasn't too bad because Sarah was very sleepy from being sick herself so we napped on and off for the last few days while Daddy was hard at work! (He's still healthy though.)

My poor girl hates getting her nose wiped and she is not a fan of that little booger sucker thing they give you at the hospital. Unfortunately we have had to use that and saline drops consistently since Tuesday. It's so sad to see a baby miserable and know that you can't do anything to make her feel better. Her nose was so stuffy that she couldn't comfortably drink her bottle or use her paci. She made this little snuffling sounds that just about broke my heart every time. I just wanted her to be back to her healthy, happy self.

 But things are looking up. She hasn't been running a fever today and we've had to wipe her nose a lot less the last two days. So I think she is finally getting better! And I am doing much better too. Less hit by a truck feeling and more just lethargic. So here's to a healing weekend so we can all enjoy a HEALTHY Christmas celebration!

Sick mama's in combo with sick babies are no fun. I do want to make a suggestion though. If you're like us, the nose sucker they gave us at the hospital has a long skinny sucking part. We purchased one with a wider nose part and it works a ton better. Hope you both feel better soon.
