Colds

Our thermometer collection.It’s Sunday night, and I thought I’d post a few words about the past week.

Last Sunday Arosha had his first fever. It was not extremely high, but he still got us a little worried. We gave him some infant’s acetaminophen at night, and he got back to normal the next day. I am not sure what was the cause of it since he did not have any cold or flue symptoms, but one of the possibilities is teething. The bottom tooth still did not cut through, but we can definitely see the swelling and white spots on the bottom gum.

Then on Tuesday I got sick — nothing too serious either, just a common cold. I got a low grade fever at night for a few days, running nose and a slightly sore throat. I took a minimal dose of Tylenol 3 times and used some saline nasal drops, but other than that I was able to stay away from medicine. ) When I got better, my mom got sick — she has the same symptoms, but using more drugs to help her with the recovery process. Neither of us are back to 100% yet, but we do feel better already. Then tonight Danya is not feeling very well. ( I am afraid that he might have caught this nasty thing as well. The sucky thing for him is that he actually has to go to work tomorrow.

Arosha had a little bit of cough and runny nose too — all very minor. My mom suggested to use my breastmilk as nasal drops, and it seems to be working like a charm. ) Arosha does not even seem to be too upset about it — milk is milk after all. )

Other than that there is nothing much to say. Arosha still wakes up too many times at night for my liking, and I am just hoping that he will start sleeping through the night sooner rather than later. My mom is a big help for now, but she’ll be staying with us for two more months only, and then it’ll get tougher. ) I wonder from time to time if he does not sleep well because of something that I am doing, or just because some babies are just wired this way. ) I hope it’s the latter, and that he’ll be sleeping longer when he is ready.
