Noelle had a relapse this morning. She started that horrible sounding cough again and her temperature was up to 102* when I took it. I called the dr’s office as soon as they opened up and was there about half an hour later. He said the coughing and congestion is mostly from a horrible cold that is going around, but the relapse was caused because she also has the beginning of an ear infection and tonsillitis. Her body couldn’t handle the virus and bacterial infections together. She’s on an antibiotic to take care of the infections and hopefully her body can take care of the cold virus now.
In other news… we’re cracking down on thumb sucking, specifically for Amie and Christine. We’ve been praying for God’s help to decrease their need for their thumbs. Now we are trying a way to help them realize when they put their thumbs in their mouths since they do it often without realizing it. We got this to help. Christine tried her thumb as soon as it dried and had such a horrible look on her face. I put some on AnnaBeth too, but I’m not sure how she’ll do. We’ll try again with her when she is older if it doesn’t work now. James and Noelle were paci babies, so we don’t have to worry about them.
