Runny Nose Central

I am surrounded by coughing, and runny noses. Literally from every angle! I guess I wasn't vigil enough at the onslaught of the sickness, because really my kids aren't usually sick for more than 12 hours. I just let their bodies kick in and fight the sickness and it always is gone in less than a day. So much so that I didn't even have Tylenol in the house when the fevers came.

What is this stuff? My poor Eli (3) started this whole mess, and he is still sick 3 days later. My youngest three seem to have it the worse and the older three are just coughing and sneezing a bunch. I'm guessing its just a simple cold bug. I am still fine! I was thinking yesterday these guys better get past this before Ava gets here!

So I am being scrupulous at making them drink their Vitamin C water and resting. I don't have any CLO but plan on getting some more as soon as I can make it to the store. I may even order it online today. The funny thing is I didn't even mention it to the boys, when I sat them all down at the table to drink their Vit C water and my oldest said "this is really bitter, but at least its not that fish oil stuff" LOL , can you tell they cant stand that stuff! I have to admit it gives me horrible indigestion as well. But the benefits out way the yuckie-ness.

Please keep us in your prayers the next few days!

My kids have colds, and I have it mildly. I have uped our Vit C and CLO intake. This is the only cold we've had for the year 2006. We almost made it a whole year without a cold. :-D

Oh that there were such an heart in them, that they would fear me, and keep all my commandments always, that it might be well with them, and with their children for ever! Duet 5:29
