Last night and today were probably the hardest I have gone through as a mother... We have all been sick with what we are pretty sure is the swine flu, and last night Jack caught it.
He was up all night crying, and feverish. His nose was runny, and he had a cough. I didn't sleep at all, and spent half the night crying right along with him.
It is so hard seeing your baby in pain and not being able to do anything about it. Most of the morning was the same, he was either fussing or sleeping... He wouldn't eat, and didn't eat for almost 11 hours. I managed to give him some pedialyte after talking to the dr. and he finally nursed this afternoon, then drank a bottle at dinnertime.
His constant crying has caused him to be hoarse, and it is so pitiful listening to him cry or try to talk.
This evening he has started getting better, he even was smiling. =) his fever looks like it might be starting to come down... Thank God!
Hopefully tonight will be better!
