We continue to fight the snotty-nose war here at RSV Central! Sometimes things are okay, and other times they are a nightmare! The kids are so up and down with this thing. One minute they're lying around being totally pitiful and then they just pop up and play for a little bit, then just start crying for no apparent reason and come collapse in your lap all pitiful again.
And the snot! It's really awful! We are constantly wiping noses and will likely max out the space in the nearest landfill with all our tissues. And don't forget...the bulb syringe! Boy do the kids LOVE to have their noses sucked! Seriously, you should see them start running for cover whenever they see one. We literally have to hold them down with this contorted immobilizing grip while they twist and scream and cry and break our hearts they whole time! But the nastiness we get out of their noses makes it worthwhile I guess.
I'll be glad when it's over. Sadly, Jonathan is still having bouts of pitifulness and still running a fever. Reagan and Thomas have also run a fever off and on and been periodically pitiful. Zachary is doing the best currently. It's hard to say who is the worst because they change so much from one minute to the next. If they can just not be pitiful all at the same time, we may survive this!
