Abigail Update

Thankfully she slept through the night last night. I am feeling much better. Hardly a trace of the drainage. She still has snot pouring out of her nose. That means I get to wipe it every 30 seconds or so. That translates into lots of crying, since Abigail doesn't like to have her nose wiped. I've tried making it into a game, but she's not buying it! :) She has a little chest congestion as well but still doesn't seem to be running a fever so I think it's a little cold that she can probably fight off quickly.

In other developments, we think that she can now say the word "yes". We've tried it several times this morning and something very close to "yes" comes out every time. She now can nod "yes" and shake her head "no".

Ok, I'd better go finish our breakfast (oatmeal and blueberries for Abigail - oatmeal and honey for me) and her nose needs wiped again. I think we're going to have to make a trip to the store for Kleenex and bread.

Why do kids hate having their noses wiped so much?? Both of mine hate it, but at least Anna is old enough to understand that she has to stand still. For Jacob, it's like chasing down a squealing, greased pig!

Sounds like seasonal allergies. Get some saline drops for her nose, (There's a "Little Noses" brand that I use with my daycare kiddos)she will hate it, but it will help a lot... it will help you too if you are suffering.
Good Luck! Aunt Cindy
