Jess-IronMamma wanted me to let you know she will not be around for a couple of days, she had some personal issues come up that she is dealing with. Hopefully everything will be back to normal for her soon. Hugs Jess.

Kristy, thank you for updating. I have a few minutes so I will update also.

5 days ago Drake started with a runny nose and a cough. I assumed it was because he got 2 molars within a week of one another. Well, 4 days ago he woke up crying around 11 pm and when I went to comfort him he started to projectile vomit. After he was done I cleaned him and myself up and went to the ER because something was telling me something was off. I was there until 3 am, but they saw that his ears were a little red so he had an ear infection. He is taking amoxocillin. 2 days later his cough just got progressively worse and something told me there is something more going on. Back to the ER, Xrays later and a culture, Drake has RSV. His coughing is awful. His poor nose is so red and runny. He cannot eat anything for 48 hours so just bottles which when he gets coughing too much he throws it up. I am so even more busy now that I needed to put JM down for a few days. I don't want you ladies to think I left you. So, lots of fluids and cuddles. I will update as much as I can.

Here is Mamma and Drakey.

Aww, poor Drake! And poor you That must be so rough without your DH around. I hope you are both able to get lots of cuddles and rest in so that Drake is feeling better soon! And just let the house slide... your mom can live with some dirty dishes and crumbs on the floor while you nurse your baby to health!

It really is rough without DH. Even more so now. We talk on the phone everyday and sometimes it makes me sader talking to him.

Drake is doing better today. He is playing BUT needs breaks because he coughs alot. He is drinking pear juice right now, different flavor from JUST formula. If he sleeps well tonight when he lays down I will pop on. You girls keep me sane. And I feel so bad, I am going through one of the hardest times in my life while I am a Host, and sometimes I feel like I am complaining too much or something.

Aww, don't worry about us hun, just get your little one all better!! When M had a cough with a wheeze the other week, the dr office nurse advised keeping her in a humid environment, even like a steamy bathroom or boiling a pan of water in the kitchen, and pushing WARM fluids to help her cough be productive and get the yuckies away from her lungs. M did not take to the warm juice but maybe that would help Drake a little bit?? And of course honey is good since he is over age 1.

You are having a rough time right now The good news is it will all be over soon and you'll be building a new life in Texas!!

One thing we also do for a cough is to raise the head of her mattress up with a pillow so she isn't laying flat.

I'm so glad he is doing a little better, and I hope you both get a good night of sleep tonight!

UPDATE

Drake is not 100% better but he is def showing sings of getting better. He still has a slight cough, and has VERY little of an appetite but he will eat, sometimes. He has been sleeping great these past 3 days. I don't wanna jink myself!

I will try to come around more often. He is just very clingy during the day and when its time for bed Mamma needs rest too. Thank you all for being so understanding.

Drake ate some mac and cheese tonight with corn for dinner. I was soo happy! It was the first thing he ate all day! And at like 7:30 ish tonight he kept saying "mmm mmmm mmmm" which means hes hungry, so he ate banana yogurt and a piece of toast. He is sleeping now, and I hope tomorrow he eats more!

Thank you bestie! Its been hard, but I know it will end soon. Drake is still coughing, but VERY LITTLE. Like maybe 5 times a day down from like every 5 minutes, so MUCH improvement. He only ate half grilled cheese and corn today. As far as meals. During the day I can get him to snack on cookies and puffs and drink water. So he IS getting something. I even made him his FAV lunch, mac and cheese and he was not interested at all! Poor Monkey!
