Quincy is sick. He started out with no fever and a runny nose. Then he had a little fever yesterday and a little tonight. I think it is a cold because he's all sneezy and snotty. We are covered in snot at this house.:) He's developed a cough, too, but it seems to just be because he has so much snot. I just plugged in the humidifier. Hoping it helps.
Anyone know anything about echinacea tea and toddlers? I told him that it might help get rid of his cold, but I'm going to have to google whether he can have it or not. I normally don't give him anything medicine-wise when he has cold symptoms. Anytime I have, it has just made it worse. He is always better in 3 or 4 days, so we have a couple more days of fever and then another few of snot.
I'm looking at a long night here. Have to check his temperature later and give more ibuprofen if he has any. I'll be up wiping his nose and then putting more vaseline under it to help with the chapping. It's very red.:) He kind of looks like Rudolph.:)
His preschool does not like for you to bring in children who have had any fever in the last 24 hours, so he'll miss his school tomorrow. It makes him sad when he misses because he doesn't get to see his friends. It's sweet how attached he is to the children he's been in preschool with for the last two years.
Think of me. I'll be wiping his nose and amusing him. :)
