Cold Vs Allergy???
My goodness we have coughing and boogies everywhere it feels like. PReston and Sophia have been suffering with what I have felt like was allergy symptoms since last friday. Soph has not had a fever, but Preston has had intermittent low grade fevers. They are both drinking and eating ok. But they just have so much mucous. Preston has been a complete cling on, he wants to be nursing almost the entire time he is awake which is exhausting. Yesterday poor little pumpkin woke up with his eye stuck shut from all the mucous. I have been going back and forth for months now about wondering if his immune system is not functioning well like Sam's didn't. It just feels like he is ALWAYS sick or constantly get over something or brewing something. I keep going back and forth about bringing them to the doctor. The coughing is just atrocious. Poor Sophia has a tough time catching her breath when she goes into the coughing fits. I did call the on-call doctor last night and got a recommendation for something to help her, but still I wish she was just better. I guess we will see how both of them are tomorrow.
