Mr. E is under the weather, but sure doesn't act it!

Mr. E has had an on again/off again cough and tad bit of sniffles for awhile now, but last night the cough just persisted and persisted to the point of him getting up in the night a couple of times. Time to finally go and see what the dr. had to say. Thankfully I was able to get a sitter on short notice and didn't have to take the other children to the germ-infested doctor office. Yay!

The doctor couldn't definitively say if it was or was not allergies...or anything else for that matter. She did prescribe antibiotic for him since it could be the early stages of a sinus infection and apparently bronchitis and walking pneumonia are going around - oh fun!

Lord willing, the medicine will clear this congestion up and Mr. E can sleep w/o coughing all night very soon. Somehow, Mr. A has been able to sleep through all the coughing - I don't know how, but I'm thankful for it!

The weather has turned nice and cool since yesterday afternoon - yay, fall is here, fall is here! There is even a little color showing in some of the trees. Nothing like some parts of the country, but we'll take what we can get here!

Despite all the missed sleep and coughing off and on, Mr. E is his regular ol' self - children are so incredibly resilient!

Children are amazing, just jumping in and out of sickness, down one minute, up the next... it's the mommies that I worry about.
