well, Thank GOD I took my flu shot because I was able to pass down my immunity from the shot onto Baby GG! That’s what our pediatrician told us as we are challenged to keep her healthy during this nasty cold and flu season.
Boy will she need all the protection she can get. Her oldest brother just got diagnosed with the flu!
Her second eldest brother is a snotty nose kid who always has some sort of infection or cold at any given moment 24 hours/365 days of the year.
the challenge was to keep the flu kid upstairs and AWAY from the baby.
Too late! We just noticed she has a runny nose and has breathing that sounds like her upper chest is a bit congested. I’m putting on the air purifier and plugging in the vick’s vapor plug tonight, then suctioning her nose and all the mucous that seems to be building up with the suction bulb we got from the hospital. so far, this is working a bit and she sounds better.
*sigh* ….thus is the life of a Winter baby. WE are off to the doctors tomorrow, but I think I will combine that trip with a trip to the Apple Store for them to diagnose my Video Ipod which has been on the brink for a couple of months now.
I plan to return to the gym soon and will need my Ipod to get me thru a treadmill run!
