The Yucks

Isa’s had the yucks for a month now. He got sick on New Year’s Eve and never really got better. The Dr. saw him 3 weeks ago and said it was just a little cold, nothing to do but wait it out. But it’s been weeks of a runny nose, coughs, near to no appetite and vomiting sometimes twice a day, which consequently means little sleep for Mama and Dada. I took him to the Dr. again yesterday and it turns out Isa has a double ear infection which was causing excessive mucus production, especially at night, with a post-nasal drip filling his belly, killing his appetite and causing him to gag and vomit every time he coughed. He actually lost a pound of weight. So he’s on antibiotics and now we wait for the improvement. But I can hear him in the other room coughing his head off as Eduardo tries to put him down to sleep, poor thing. I dare not nurse him in bed either, because that pretty much ensures he’ll throw it all up in a few minutes. Hopefully he’ll be feeling better soon.

  2. I’m so sorry you are feeling sick Isa. Keira is just getting over what you got – she had a stomach virus for a week, yucking everything up and now has a mean cough and nasal drip. Something is going around! Your mommy and daddy are making sure you are well cared for – hopefully you’ll feel better in no time.
