Ethan is so much better now. I knew he was already back to his old self when he woke me up giggling in his sleep last Saturday morning. Can you imagine? He slept till 9a.m.?!!
We still fed him his medication through the weekend, because we wanted to be certain there would be no recurrence of the illness. Guess what? We only found out yesterday that the syringe that we used to administer the medicine needed to be positioned at an angle so that the medicine will be shot right down his throat, giving him no chance to gargle or cough it up. So last night, we promised Ethan that it would be the absolute last time he would be taking the medicine.
This horrible coughing illness has been a force to be reckoned with, and I am SO GLAD that we will soon be rid of it forever.
Pete – 8 weeks
