Bad news: He's got a cough. Woke up Monday with one. Went away. Another on Tuesday. Went away with treatments. Wednesday and that night. Both went away with treatments ... but he coughed through the night off and on. Today, he's still croupy even with extra treatments.
Hope and pray it clears. If not, we'll be at the Doctor tomorrow to see what she hears. And other than IV fluids, I have EVERYTHING at home that they use for him at the hospital. (That was their plan.)
And no, the irony is not lost on me that the cough assist might have arrived just in time to, uh... er ... "assist in his coughing". (Update on that ... in talking with several moms with similar situations, many use it only when the child is sick, not a a preventative measure. I think I can live with that.)
Of course we have to modify it for him due to muscle weakness. Usually it's a set of car keys or some other noisy object. But for him, it was the corner of a piece of crinkly paper. Nevertheless, he understood the game and played it for a long time with me. Tooo fun!
And as I recall, I've played this with many a 1 year old. So he's right on track!
For the record, the pics are from his first month home. Just wanted to show how much he's changed in 3 1/2 months!
