Almost there

Yesterday morning the kiddo crawled into my bed groaning about his tummy hurting (THAT will wake a parent up quicker then pretty much anything else). I quickly asked him if it was inside tummy upset, or if it was muscles hurting when he coughed. He said it was muscles, then he coughed and curled into a ball moaning about it hurting.

Most of you know that the Kiddo has a very high pain tolerance, so when he says something hurts you can be pretty certain that it really really hurts. The good news was he had no temperature so the fever part of the cold was past, I scooped him up and went to find some medicine for the cough and honey for his throat. He spent the rest of the day chilling on the couch trying not to do anything that would make him cough.

Last night he slept solid; I didn't hear any coughing and this morning he slept until around ten. I'm taking that as a good sign, he is on the mend! The dark smudges under his eyes are lighter and he's acting a lot more energetic. He's still got the cough, but it's an occasional thing ... a flurry of coughs that catch his breath and bring tears to his eyes and then are done and he's fine. The cough medicine is helping so he really only goes through that every thirty minutes or so.

And that's the sick kiddo update, hopefully tomorrow we'll be back to business as usual.
