My poor baby is sick. Ezri started off with a runny nose last Wednesday and then preceded to keep us up most of the night. She wouldn’t stop crying and whining. None of our usual tactics to calm her down would work. Peter and I were actually quite worried as we had never seen her act that way before. We actually moved downstairs and watched TV for a bit in the middle of the night. Never has that happened before. Finally she passed out for a couple hours, but it didn’t last long. As Peter had to work, my Mom and I took Ezri to the clinic Thursday morning, just to be safe. We wanted to rule out anything we could. Luckily, we got in to see the doctor quite quickly so there wasn’t too much waiting. There wasn’t much to be done and we were sent home with instructions to try to help her feel better.
Now, it’s been a week and Ezri is still sick. She developed a terrible cough over the weekend and we know her throat is sore. She is very cranky whenever she has a coughing fit. She refused to take any medication for days, but finally took some last night and today. She only sleeps a couple hours at night and then is up coughing and whining again. Naps are barely an hour long before she’s up crying again. It’s been a tough week for sleep, what with being up with Ezri AND Jadzia more than 8x per night.
Ezri has never had a cold this bad before. I am hoping it’s not something worse than just a cold. I’m always worrying. If her coughing is still this bad by Friday, I think we will take her back to the clinic. Thank goodness for our wonderful health care system.
Of course Jadzia has caught this cold as well. She only seems to have the runny nose part and a tiny cough. She’s definitely in better spirits than Ezri is. I am hoping she will recover soon too.
It hurts my heart to have my babies sick. I feel so helpless. Hoping everyone becomes 100% once again very soon!
