Keeping Our Heads Above Water

Oh My! I returned home from the hospital with my beautiful baby boy to find his big brother running a very high fever. The next morning, Meg, woke up with the same high fever. Because Davis visited the doctor the previous day, we knew it was a virus needing to run its course.

The next morning, I woke up with the same high fever! We are still waiting for this virus to run its course. Meg is on her fifth day so she is off to the doctor this morning.

On the bright side - Kale is doing great. He is sleeping and eating well. He is a little jaundiced, but it doesn't seem to be too serious. So far he has managed to avoid this crazy virus - the power of breast milk!

I'm looking forward to getting back online soon.

Way to go nursing mama! Gotta love those antibodies -- I always felt so calm about household illnesses when I was nursing my babies. Don't forget to take care of yourself! We will be here when you're ready...

Hang in there! I'm glad Kale is remaining untouched by this virus. It sounds terrible!
