Re: NTNP November 18th - 24th
It's always so hard to watch them struggle when sick. My DD and I are both still sick from some nasty thing DH brought home 2 weeks ago.

His fever still hasn't gone below 100-101 all day. I guess the good news is that it wasn't my worst fear, pnumonia, and he didn't have to go to the hossy. Bless his heart!
We have the humidifier going, lots of liquids, and I have DD sleeping elevated as much a possible. (I have a towel rolled up under her mattress. And she is sleeping on a pillow. I know pillows are a no-no but she had major reflux issues so she has slept on a boppy since she was 2 months old. She co-slept with us when she was little. It was the boppy or we would have to each take turns staying up and holding her up for her to sleep. )
