Update on the pumpkin

Well, the weekend was "poopy" as I mentioned yesterday, and so far the week seems to be heading in that same direction. Lily is still feeling like doo. Her nose is partly stuffed/ partly runny, so it is a nasty, crusty, gurgling mess. She CANNOT stand to have me near her with the tissues (even if they are Puffs Plus with lotion)...she behaves as if they are sandpaper with prickers. She runs screaming in the opposite direction after each sneeze, cuz she knows what I am going to attempt to do. Ugh. Luckily for her, I am officially OUT of tissue. Double Ugh.

She is now snoring away -- I am hoping for a good nap. Although last night she was up several times due to rib busting coughing fits. My poor girl. I cannot stand to see her like this. She has been (thankfully) very healthy this winter. Others around her have fallen victim to all sorts of ailments and she has remained in perfect health...until now, of course. Oh well, spring must be around one of these corners. Then things will start to look up.

Can you tell I am feeling sorry for myself today? Yep, I sure am. I also have a runny nose, and a sinus headache, and I am not liking being me today.

So, in order to keep things in perspective, I will post a picture of Lily from LAST WEEK -- a happier time in our lives and I will think on that. This is her enjoying one of her new favorite treats. We were at the grocery store last week and there was a man in there with his son, and he had just purchased a box of these yummy popsicles. Lily and I strolled by said man and his son, and Lily's eyeballs popped out of her head at the sight, so the man GAVE Lily one of the popsicles...sooooo nice. Her whole face lit up as she said "Tay too" to the man. I then headed to the freezer section to purchase a box of these frozen goodies for my girl. Now, everytime I give her one (which is at least once daily), she will say "nice man give this to Yee Yee). See, just telling that story is making me feel better. I am even smiling now.
Hope everyone is having a happy Monday.
Oh, and if you are in the neighborhood, would you mind swinging by with a box of Puffs Plus!?!

That sounds like Chloe lately - she is not sleeping well either - just coughing her brains out - seems like the vaporizer is the only thing that helps her - hang in there - it has to end soon!!!

The sneezing, runny nose, counghing stage... been there, done that. It is indeed tough to see the little ones under the weather! Hang in there and GET WELL SOON LILY!!!
Enjoy those popsicles! I have had a bunch of those lately with my sore throat. They really do the trick and are pretty tasty! :P

Sounds like a yucky Monday for sure! Hope she woke from her nap feeling a little better and you are starting to come around as well.

So nice to find another Michigan blogger! I'm so sorry your little Lily is sick. Our family has been fighting the flu bug for a couple weeks now. My youngest has had it TWICE! I don't know about you, but I can't wait until this weather warms up!

Jody said...

You should have told me this morning I would have brought you a box. Her hair looks so long in that picture, too cute!

Nikki, ask your PED about children's Mucinex. We have been using that with Hannah this winter. It seems to help alot when she is congested badly. There is actually a grandulated form that dissolves in the mouth. Hannah does fine with this form.

Shannon said...

Yikes! Hopes she's feeling better soon. Is it weird that I saw the picture from the last post and thought...that might make a great screensaver at work?

Oh yucky cruddy stuff....I am so sorry little Lily is feeling so yuck.
Feel better fast cutie pie.

OK, I have to tell you. We are in the same boat as far as the excessive runny nose and cough. You wouldn't know it by our pictures at the park today, but this is our life every winter. Spicy Girl catches pretty much every cold she comes in contact with. She has coughed so much in the last 24 hours that I think I might lose my mind. The sound of her coughing is driving me batty! Poor thing, I know it's not her fault.

Beth and Shayna said...

I hope you & Lily are feeling better soon!

I hope your little pumpkin (or punkin as my mom would say) is all better soon. It's no fun to be sick.

The popsicles look fun -- that man was sooo nice.
