mom. I have managed to not get sick so far, and I am praying it stays this way. My 2 year old has been sick since this last Saturday. He has had a runny nose, a cough and a fever. I am keeping the fever down with medicine, but it keeps coming back. My 5 year old started getting sick this last Sunday, with the same symptoms as my 2 year old.
The first one to get sick was my husband, he has had the same symptoms as the two boys. He had to come home early from his second job on Sunday night, till then he had been able to keep the symptoms under control with medication. He seems to be getting better now. He stayed home on Monday to help me with the kids. Our two year old has been waking up at 3 am since Sunday coughing and this wakes him up. He then has a hard time going back to sleep and I do all I can to put him back to sleep. It has not been working he usually stays awake and so do I.
Today my 5 year old told me his ear hurts, so I immediately called and made appointments witht he pediatrician for both of them this afternoon. I am sure the older one has an ear infection, since he tells me it hurts even when he isn’t touching it.
