one tough cookie.


After less than a week of being over that last cold, G is sick again. After two more days of inhalers, humidifiers, nebulizers, wheezing, and crying, I think we are about ready to buckle down (even more) for this cold and flu season and ride it out from home!

This little guy has a birthday this week (he's going to be FOUR!), so we want him to be happy and healthy for his big day. He told me not to worry - he is one tough cookie.

Happy (upcoming) Birthday G!

I am so sorry you have another cold but you sound strong enough to tough it out!

Aimee said...

So sorry Denise...are you just worn out? I am sure ready to feel better...I just came to the conclusion that I have a sinus infection. Best to you and your little tough cookie :)

Nevis said...

I am so sorry to hear that you are struggling. We are sitting by the neb with you. Our 2 year old is fighting hard to breath, again, too. It's so hard, I know, oh boy, do I. I'm thinking you and your little guy!!!

Kitty Mommy said...

Happy Birthday week to a big FOUR year old, and wishing good health for all of you!

Denise sorry to hear of your little one being ill. I know its certainly no fun at all. We have had to use the neb a few times over the past 2 weeks, and I know its coming again.

Happy Early Birthday to your "Tough Cookie".

Anet said...

Happy Birthday G and feel better soon!!!!

...oh boy...poor guy...he is definitely "one tough cookie".

sending you healthy thoughts...and a happy day ahead!

Thanks for the well wishes everyone!

Sally - Oh no! I was thinking of you guys the other day (while sitting doing nebulizer), wondering if it was getting any better there. I'm actually worried G has pnemonia, so we are watching him closely tonight and might have to take him in. Poor guy. I hope your little one stays healthy!!!

Aimee - Yeah, super worn out. Luckily I don't need as much sleep as the normal person! ;) I had a sinus infection (mold spore allergies) last month and the neti pot and kombucha helped a lot, I think. Hope you are feeling better...

It's just making him STRONGER! Look out mama, this kid looks ready to PARTY no matter what!

He sure looks tough in that photo! Love the cheeky grin! Get well soon little one.

Mandaroo said...

aww, that's one sweet little grin. I feel for him. It gets to the point when you want make sure friends you are seeing are not with colds during this season! Hope he's healthy and happy for his bday!

denise said...

Mandaroo - Exactly. We try SO hard to be super careful and not go around sick kids or crowded places and are so careful about washing hands...but it was not enough. We have to keep him in quite a bit now - "until Mother's Day" was the *funny* comment from the Dr. at Urgent Care today. Not laughin', buddy. ;)

Lizz said...

Oh my! I will think of you guys and send some swift healing vibes your way. I know winter is tough with the virus onslaught.

That picture of G in that shirt is cracking me up! I hope you all are doing better. My old housemate had a son who had to use the nebulizer and I remember many late nights up with that little guy.
