Add another one to the sick list...

Just a quick update, no pics.

C is still sick, coughing a ton with a scratchy throat and runny nose and now it looks like Jon is coming down with the something as well. He's usually pretty good about fighting things off before they get too bad, but with us both waking up several times during the night due to C's coughing and crying (from the pain in her throat and ears), his body just hasn't been able to fight this one off. And as most people know, a sick man is almost as bad as a sick kid, at least in the complaining department! ;)

One interesting thing to note - Jon (while unable to sleep) found an article about using honey (with kids over 2) to help prevent nighttime coughing, causing kids to sleep better. It's supposed to work better than any of those over the counter cough remedies - not that we give those to C anyway! We're trying it tonight so I'll be able to let you know how well it works tomorrow. :)

aww FEEL BETTER SOON C! How did the honey work? I know a lot of people swear by the honey-lemon cough drops, so it will be interesting to hear how the honey works along.
