Dear Noah.....I think you have made the turn around the corner.....finally

This weekend you fever finally broke. It had lasted for 6 days. I still think I should have been concerned. I mean how would I know if bacteria had entered into your bloodstream and traveled to your heart to cause an infection around the heart or in that valve and do damage? I am still upset about that.

Your nose still sounds like it has a lot of stuff up inside it....though nothing can really be blown out. You cough a lot....and it sounds so junky ended up last night almost vomiting...but it allowed you to bring up a massive amount of mucus. This is good....and it was clear which is also good....but you coughed throughout the night. I am sure it exhausts you.

You felt much better Sunday though so you wanted to play some games with me. We played Monopoly and Scrabble. We took it easy for the day.

Today you woke up around 8:30 I think but came out and laid down on the love seat/sofa and fell asleep again till after 11:00 a.m. I know you are worn out. I hope to finally get you in the tub today and wash you up good and your pajamas and bedding.

We played Rummikub today and Scrabble again. That was about all you could muster energy for though...and it made you cough more the longer you were up. I have given you a water bottle filled with water to have at all anytime you get the urge to cough you will take a sip of water. This helps....and it helps break up that mucus.

I got a tip in a comment about putting Vicks also on your feet....I will try that tonight and see if it helps control your cough better. I had heard this once before, but had forgotten about trying it!

Anyway.......I think you are on the mend finally.....but you won't be able to do too much for this has zapped your energy level.

I love you...I am still hoping and praying you continue to get better very fast!

Very happy you're showing some improvement. Sometimes it can take the ole flu a while to break up. My Dad use to call it the grip. I know the one time I had it, around 7th. grade, had a real high fever for several days and he would fix me something called a hot tottie in the evening, I can remember lemons and sugar, but that's about all I can remember. Mom might know.

Keep on improving Noah. Hope the cough clears up soon. I've heard about the Vicks on the bottom of the feet. Not sure how it works.

Love you to the moon and back.

Glad the fever finally broke. I had heard about Vick on the feet as well. Hope it helped.
