Thanks for NOTHIN' House Arrest!!!

Well, I do this marathon post about staying in the house to keep klp healthy and this one is about sickness! UGHH!! He's got a cold and felt pretty crummy a few days ago, then seemed better, then yesterday started the cough phase of the cold. No fever, nothing major, just snot. He actually acts fine, sleeping is just tricky. He spent most of the night laying on me so he could stay elevated. We did the whole Vics on his feet last night and I think it kinda worked. He coughed way less that he did during the day. Wonder if I could do it during the day too, or if it would stop working all togehter.

These came in the mail from the RSV vaccine people...kinda funny.
Here they are close up so you can read them:


So, I said there was a lot of snot. Beside the chair where I feed him, I have a box of Kleenex and a bag to put them in after they're used. Check the back out...its almost full! Kanyon is good at "productive" sneezes! I'm just glad its coming out!



This is how he slept yesterday afternoon. He kept waking up in his bed, so I held him in the chair for a while, then propped him up so he was elevated. It worked great except that I was scared to leave the room (in case he woke up and tried to get out of the chair) and I had to be quiet. AND Ollie kept trying to sniff and lick him and I had to yell quietly at Ollie to STOP!




Oh well! Colds happen, I just hope we can turn the corner on this one before we leave for T-giving.....and that we don't come back with a new one!!!!!!!
By the way, I'm a little stuffy myself thanks to Kanyon's new trick of giving kisses. I just can't resist even the slimiest ones, so I guess I shouldn't be surprised that I got the cold too!
