to put it mildly, our family had a long restless night last night. stephen and i are exhausted. i seriously feel like i tried everything possible last night. sienna and chloe were both coughing all night long. but sienna's was by far the worst. no joke, she probably coughed every 10-30 seconds the whole night. i couldn't sleep listening to her, and would've felt like a jerk parent if i'd shut my door to shut out the noise. but believe me, i considered it, cause no matter how hard we tried to help her....no matter what we did, it made no difference. it's mostly a dry cough, although she does have a stuffy nose. i'm sure it's post-nasal-drip. but how horrible it is! i'm over it.
(on her chest, neck...and yes, even on her feet with socks)
homemade honey-lemon-water solution
doubled the pillows (to sleep more upright)
am i leaving anything out? i'm begging for ideas or help!
another problem? the girls' insurance was cancelled last month and although i've added them to my work insurance, it doesn't start until january. there's no way we can pay for a doctor's visit, unless it's an emergency. this is part of why i'm so desperate to fix it at home. leave a comment if you've got something new that i need to know about. please!
