The Good, The Bad, and...

Well, we all had a wonderful visit with Marie. Ryan loved meeting his auntie. The dogs are missing her right now too. I'm so glad that she was able to make it out for a visit.

So not only was the weekend great because my sister was visiting, but we also sold our house back in OK. We ended up with a good deal, and hopefully things will go smoothly. I have my fingers crossed until after the home inspection is done. This couldn't have come at a better time though. I'll be so happy to have it done before Pat leaves.

Now for the bad...Ryan caught that ugly, awful cold. It is absolutely heartbreaking to see him so distressed coughing and being congested. He is completely miserable just like I was when I got it, but he is so little. Hopefully he'll get over it soon, because it's not only painful for him but also for us to watch. The past 24 hours have been the worst of it for him so Pat and I are just doing our best to cuddle him and make him comfortable. Pat is starting to feel that tickle in the back of his throat now too. So it looks like I'll be taking care of both my boys for a while.

I'd better go make some chicken soup for dinner.

a) That is awful about Ryan...the pediatrician said that day four is going to be pretty bad too so just make sure to watch out for that. And, we got a humidifier for Porter that seemed to help a little bit. Also, go into the bathroom, shut the door, strip down Ryan, and turn on the shower for as hot as it can go. Stay in there for like 15-20 minutes-it should help with the coughing.

b) That is fantastic about the house!! What a sigh of relief, huh? I'm with you on the inspection...I'm nervous about that for our house when we sell it. I'm sure that it will turn out great!

If you need anything, I will be home tomorrow!

It's funny that you say that about day four. It was the absolute worst. We did all the tricks you mentioned too--humidifier, steamy shower, and even the bulb for his nose.
