Swine Country.

Just a little update on my little ones. Claire actually ran fever all night. BOO. I thought we were on the mend with her but she has been coughing and laying around all morning. She got up and 8:00 and was coughing her head off so I brought her downstairs in an effort to let Cohen sleep in.

Cohen took about half a dose of Tamiflu last night after spitting most of it out at me. I think it made him sick to his stomach because he threw up twice. He had a restless night but it wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be! This morning he came down and seemed to be in pretty good spirits. He turned the corner and said, "Momma LOOK!" He pointed to his arm which was covered in blood. As I gasped and tried to keep it cool, I realized he had NO clue that his entire face was also covered in blood! Apparently they poked him pretty good when they checked him for the flu and now he has a pretty constant nose bleed. I wasn't even thinking when I sat him on the sink and he looked over at the mirror. He FREAKED OUT!!! Poor kid! So, I have a call into the doctor just to see if I should be concerned. He insists on wiping his nose himself, so here is what he looks like. I PROMISE I am trying to keep his face clean, but he just gets so upset and I'm trying to pick my battles here.
