Fever and Runny nose bring on too much worry!

All this talk of H1N1 and my thoughts of RSV keep going thru my head with each cough and nose I wipe. Little Taylor just turned 5 months yesterday and has been running a fever since Wednesday evening around 102 F. Ashley had a fever too which appears to be gone as of this morning but her nose is still runny. I feel particularly concerned because of H1N1 with Ashley's underlying conditions and Taylor young age. However we went to the doctor this morning and he believes it just to be a regular run of the mill cold or virus. They are both still eating and not acting too miserable so I guess I need to relax a little. I'm not getting much sleep and keep checking for sign of respiratory distress just to be on the safe side. They need to get better quickly as Ashley has a fun Birthday party to attend on sunday and I'm tired.

In the mean time I can't wait for the flu shot to be ready this year.

Please give them a big hug and lots of kisses from Grammy & Grampy. Grampy, who is also fighting a chest cold and sneezy times, sympathizes greatly.

Make sure you get your rest and take care of yourself, Sherry. If you get run down, you could end up ill yourself.

Oh, H1N1 scares me too just because I have asthma. I can 100% sympathize with your fears with both of them. I'll keep you all in my prayers & I also hope you will be first in line when that darn vaccine finally comes out (personally, I think November is really pushing it LATE, but hopefully you all are first in line.)
