Nathan has been afflicted with a terrible cough for no less than two months. He has twice had prescriptions from his pediatrician, has taken a lifetime of cough medicine and we have even tried crazy remedies. It seemed nothing was going to work. Amazingly, last night I do not believe I heard Nathan cough this is the run down of treatments for the day - prescription medication (tablet on the tongue), Robitussin DM, breathing treatment also from pediatrician, Vicks vapor rub on the feet with socks over, humidifier with Vicks in the water - that might be it... And can you believe it, it seemed to work...UNTIL this morning! Maybe it is chronic.
We brought Grandpa Beadle to the airport yesterday after getting Nathan from school. In our ten minute trip home from the airport Audrey fell asleep. I knew she was very tired so I put her in her crib when we arrived home. Well, she woke up during the walk up the steps and she was sure she wasn't going to fall back to sleep. I left her in her crib thinking she would settle down and fall back to sleep. I went down stairs and was in the bathroom washing my hands when I heard a loud clunk on the ceiling above me. I quickly headed up the stairs to find Audrey meeting me on the way down. She wasn't graceful in her decent and claims to have hit her head although I did not see a mark of any kind. So, our life with the crib is over. She went to bed in her twin bed last night. We closed her door thinking we would be able to hear her if she were to wake up in the night. Well, we did hear her...as she was rounding the corner from the upstairs and heading downstairs to the basement looking for "momma" just before midnight!
