Daniel is feeling better after weathering a storm of symptoms, including
coughing, congestion, wheezing and fever. We did not update the web site
last week, because we spent most of the day at Urgent Care, where they
determined he had an upper respiratory infection. He was quite a trooper
and only got fussy after dinnertime and bedtime had passed without seeing the
The doctor suggested Daniel sleep propped up to help him breathe, which we
thought would be impossible, since he likes to roll laps around his crib at
night! The car seat, tucked in the crib with pillows (see below), was the
perfect solution! He slept there at night and took of all his naps there
for almost a week.
During that week Daniel was home sick, Mom and Dad swapped a.m. and p.m.
shifts at work, trading off at lunchtime. It was a tiring schedule for us
all (especially for Dad, who started an online Masters program last week), but
we were glad to be able to comfort Daniel when needed. Mom thanks Dad for
his tremendous amount of help, not just this week, but every week as we partner
in this wonderful world of parenthood!! (likewise from Dad to Mom too!)
