The Good and the Bad

The bad news is Jackson and Clayton have both been sick with a fever virus the last few days.  The good news is that today they seem to be on the tail end of it.

The bad news is we had to endure a marathon trip to the doctor's office that had a packed waiting room full of sick and very whiny kids (can't blame them!).  The good news is my mom and dad sat outside in the parking lot with Clayton and Jackson while I waited for our name to be called inside.  (THANKS, MOM AND DAD!)

The bad news is I gave Jackson Benadryl for the first time last night and he was BOUNCING OFF THE WALLS.  The good news is I know not to ever do THAT again!

The bad news is they both have a super junky cough that I'm sure will be hanging around for a bit.  The good news is that their lungs are clear and Clayton is strong enough these days to keep coughing that stuff up.

The bad news is their fever got higher than I like to see it (102).  The SUPER good news is Clayton has been able to stay coherent through all of it!  So many times in the past he has literally gone almost comatose with any fever.  He has done so well fighting this bug, which proves again how strong his body is getting and how much healing is taking place behind the scenes when we really don't even realize it!

Hate to hear about the sickies. Glad to hear how strong Clayton is getting though. I hope both boys are better.
