My children gave me their awful, horrible, no good, very bad cold. My eyes are watery, my nose drips continuously, and I have a nasty cough. Also, my head feels like it weighs 200 pounds. Gah. As you might have guessed, we sat around the house doing NOTHING all weekend long. My kids were bouncing off the walls, but I was too sick to care.
Porgie's cold caused her to cough so violently, that she ended up breaking blood vessels on the surface of her skin. I noticed that Porgie had what appeared to be "freckles" under her eyes. Upon closer inspection, I noticed that they were tiny red dots. They were under both eyes and across her eyelids. I frantically called the doctor, certain that my child had the bubonic plague. It turns out that broken blood vessels from violent coughing/vomiting is fairly common. It cleared up in about 2 days.
Although Porgie is feeling much better, poor little Izzy still has a pretty bad cough and a runny nose. I have to go into his room to comfort him two or three times per night. I think all of this sleep deprivation is starting to have a negative effect on my little guy. Out of nowhere, Izzy fell and bashed his head into a door frame last night...I am looking forward to getting out of house and breathing fresh air again. I have my fingers crossed that this week will bring healing and happy times.
