Well, I think it was inevitable that sooner or later the kids would be coming down with some kind of cold since they just started back to school. It happens every year. This year, however, Philip had a cough for about 3 weeks. We took him to the doctor last week and he was diagnosed with bronchitis. He seemed to improve with the antibiotic, then the day after he completed the antibiotic, he began coughing again. His cough was worse, and this time he also had a fever.
We took him back to the doctor the other day, and they believe he has pneumonia. Different medication was prescribed. Philip has missed a few days of school as well. Santhosh has also returned from India, with a high fever. He was taken to the doctor, and was diagnosed with the flu. The doctor was amazed that even before the official flu season began, he was diagnosed. Well, the desire to be first in everything can sometimes go too far. :)
So I am home this long weekend, destined to get everyone back on the road to recovery. I love being home with my family. I think that they may get tired of me. After I ragged Philip for only drinking one jug of water today, he asked if I was going to work tomorrow. :) Yes, I feel the love. My sweet babies. I cannot bear to see them sick.
Thank you so much for your prayers on their behalf. We want them well so that I can get more of the LWR updates. God is faithful. God bless you all!
