Over two weeks later

Since Juliet turned one over two weeks ago she's been sick. As I noted already, she had RSV, a dangerous virus for babies. So, in hopes of getting her well again we've been hunkered down at home.

And if you know anything about me, I really hate to be home day after day.

Nights have been terrible. Naps have been horrific. And finally when I think she's turning a corner, finally getting better, she gets bad again. Last night she was coughing, so violently I thought she'd vomit. For hours and hours and hours she coughed.

I tried to make her comfortable.

It was horrible.

I was up the majority of the night with a very sick baby girl. And I've been up many nights this month for hours on end.

I'm tired of feeling tired. I'm tired of seeing my baby girl so sick. I'm tired of feeling cooped up with two cranky kids. What I'm trying to say is that I'm just tired. I am very much looking forward to getting my sweet girl healthy and for spring to finally peek her head into this very cold winter that's been full of being sick.


  1. Man, sounds rough! I hope that Juliet is on the mend!!! Hopefully James has patience with the situation. Good luck to all of you, in working through this!!!

  2. I remember those days...and we still have those days. I slept in Max's room last night as I watched him strain to breath all evening. I know it is tough, but staying home is a good thing. Sesame Street saved me on weeks like you have been having. I hope she is better soon! I found it is just when you think they can't get worse, then 24 hours later they are better.


Lovely thoughts:
