Going Viral

It's here - the little boy has his first cold. We came home from running errands today and his throat started sounding a little hoarse. Right now he is sleeping upright in my arms. He is super stuffy and glassy-eyed with a slightly elevated temperature (no fever though), but otherwise he is in pretty good spirits. We put a couple of rolled up blankets under his mattress to elevate it which I think is helping him sleep somewhat, but it's gotta be frustrating to have your nose running and not know how to blow it. I'm hoping if he gets a good night's sleep, he'll feel a little better in the morning.


  1. I hope he feels better fast. I wish you had a steam shower. That was the one good thing about that B&B in Taos. What I wouldn't have given for one of those when you kids were little and prone to croup and colds.

  2. Thanks!
    A steam shower would be nice, and not just for sickness. : )
    I did steam up the bathroom for a bit last night (a hidden advantage of having a tiny bathroom), and it seemed to help a little. His nose is running pretty well, so at least he doesn't seem to have a lot of pressure. Some extra TLC and Tylenol will probably do the trick today.
