No one is happy! This last week Keegan was sick with a nasty cold that came with so much snot! He had a fever for 4 days straight and it felt like he never was going to recover. Bless his heart, and our hearts for that matter. We barely could get a smile out of him. Praise the Lord that through the snot-fest, Jonathan and I did not get anything.
So, I read something in my Baby 411 book that was less encouraging than anything. It said that babies begin to get sick when they start venturing out in the world. (knew that) but...here are the statistics....
*The average number of viral infections per year for kids under age five is EIGHT!!
*Each illness lasts seven to ten days.
*Most infections occur between October and April
*That's 80 days of illness packed into six months of the year.
Lord, help us. I did not realize until last week how much your week can come to a halt, how many naps they miss, and how sad it is to watch them mope around the house when they are sick. I figure this is something I need to get used to and invest in some Airborne!
