poor sick baby

Mr. Tough guy is finally getting over a list full of illnesses.  Last Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday he slept 8 or more hours at night.  I should have known something was up when that happened, right? ;) 
Anyway- around Tuesday he started to have a runny nose and a cough at night.   Wednesday morning, he woke up rubbing his watery eyes, coughing, sneezing... everything on his face was red and puffy.  I ended up taking the day off and staying home with him.  I figured it was probably another cold (since he's had several of those) but started to worry a little more as the afternoon went on.  I always question whether or not to bring him to the doctor, but the pitiful little boy just needed to be checked out.  Thankfully they saw him that day. 
-ear infection
-possible sinus infection
1 breathing treatment, 1 prescription, and 20 questions later we walked out.
Of course, I came home and Googled "Bronchiolitis".. bad idea.  With a little TLC from Mama and Dad he's been getting progressively better with every day.  Everyone goes back to work/school tomorrow.

Bless his heart! I am the same way about the doctor... I hate going b/c I don't want to expose them to germs if it's "just a virus" but the I worry about NOT taking them. Glad he's starting to feel better!
