winter be gone

whenever the kids get sick i can't help but feel like i've failed as a mother, even though i can't change the weather or prevent germs from entering their bodies. m&m don't just get the usual common cold since they have RAD, they usually require multiple nebulizer treatments and antibiotics. 

malia has been pretty sick this past week, she's had a fever of 102 on and off for the past 4 days. it's not as bad as when she had pneumonia, but it's pretty close. and it's such a struggle to get her to take her meds. she cries, hides, and can even make herself throw it up if i don't give her a lecture first. so far, no fever. such a relief because i was thinking of taking her to the ER if she wasn't better by this afternoon. she's still coughing like crazy, but at least she got up to dance for a little bit. always a good sign. BUT, now daddy and micah have joined the coughing club. micah even placed himself onto malia's designated sick couch. oh, when will spring be here?
