Sick Babies

We are struggling with some illness at the Crossett house lately. It turns out things are getting worse instead of better! The boys and I have all had these horrible colds for the past week or so (after just getting better from the last one) and they took a turn for the worse at the beginning of this week. The boys are both coughing horribly and Jack spiked a fever last night. Jack was coughing so hard today he threw up more than once and he still has a fever so Neil took him to the doctor. They spent a long time working him up. They took blood (no tears!) and did some breathing treatments. Apparently he is having trouble breathing with the beginnings of pneumonia. They sent him home with a Nebulizer machine to do breathing treatments as well as an antibiotic and steroid. We are going back in to the doctor tomorrow to see if things are getting better. Wish us luck and keep us in your thoughts because I sure hate seeing my babies so sick! No matter how sick they are they still love a good bath!

Poor kiddo.
He seems to like this thing!
