So, for the last month or so Payton has had this really nasty cold. On Friday night, I actually took him to urgent care because he actually got a fever on top of all the couching and green stuff from the nose. He's always such a happy baby, but he just cries and cries. Of course, by the time I get there his temp was back down in the 99 degree range, clear fluid from the nose, no more crying, etc. The doctor said he just has a viral infection and that his tonsils were swollen. They strep tested him, which he did not like! Came back negative which was good. So we went home and he went to bed, sure enough next morning he's really sick again. Sunday, we didn't even go to church, Paytie just cried all day. Then today, I had my BNI meeting this morning and dropped the kids off at my mom's house. When I got back Paytie was still sleeping, he slept until 10:30AM. My poor baby just looked miserable. He has no appetite at all, just wants his mom. We put him back down for a nap around noon and he slept til 4PM. I'm to the point I don't know what to do for him. Sunday Ben and Kelvin gave him a blessing. Maybe as parents, we need to pray harder for our son to feel better, I don't know. Tomorrow I'm going to give him 1/4 tsp of Amla Rush and see if that will help him. Amla is amazing that's what I gave him small dosages of when he was throwing up all the time and it helped with his digestion. (Google the Amla berry sometime, it's an amazing plant!) Well, for all those reading this, please keep Payton in your prayers and thoughts. And us as parents that we might know what to do to help him recover.
