Sick Kids and Daddy's In DC

In my last post I alluded to the fact that the girls had a nasty cough. Well, they still have it, it has progressively gotten worse and Connor and I also now have it. It’s a barking cough, sore throat, sinus pressure; tight chest type of ailment and it appears to be hanging around forever. Obviously it’s no fun for all but Connor is our main concern right now given his age. Lynne took Isabel to the doctor this morning and she has prescribed steroids for her (she is definitely the worst affected) and has indicated that all three kids should be using an albuterol nebulizer (Isabel will have to use for the remainder of the winter). This will hopefully help them clear any liquid build-up in their lungs and hopefully to avoid a secondary infection. No fun at all right now, particularly since I’m in Washington DC.

Randy and Lorraine were willing (as always) to come over this evening and tomorrow to help Lynne out. Thanks once again to you both.
