The kids are sick again

It’s been a l-o-n-g night. The boys didn’t sleep much and therefore, neither did I. Elliott has started with an upper respiratory thing with is complicated by his asthma.

Interesting fact. Elliott was born premature, suffer bilateral pneumothorax and was diagnosed with premature lung disease. He spent around 10 days in the NICU and we were told that the lung disease would have no impact on him as he got older. Turns out, at least in Elliott’s case, that’s not true. His allergist/immunologist said that it’s probably why his more prone to upper airway infections.

Elliott will go through periods of time where he just can’t seem to shake there’s upper airway infections. They last forever and seem to keep coming back. This is especially true when he’s under a great deal of stress and he’s currently under a great deal of stress.

Emmett started with tummy issues midway through the day yesterday. He’s spent much of his time last night, running back and forth to the bathroom.

Ironically, Gavin, the one with a compromised immune system is the one who’s not sick. Thank God for that.

As I said, it’s been a long night.
