This week is draggin'

Well, this week has felt really long. My Carter is still sick. =( I had taken him to the Dr. on Monday and he had croup and an ear infection. SO we got an antibiotic and a steroid. He finished the steroid and the croupy cough is gone but he still has a persistent yucky cough. He can't rest well at all. Last night he coughed non-stop, I felt so sorry for him. I called the Dr. first thing this morning to see if we should go in(even though we have an antibiotic to finish) or if they could call in something for his cough. They took til 4:30 to call me back, although I called three times to bug them. Ughhh!! Anyway, they didn't want call in any cough meds but would rather see him.  Since RSV is apparently going around pretty bad right now, they would like to test him to be sure he doesn't have it. We have been fortunate and have never had that at our house but apparently, you can have RSV and no fever or other symptoms. But one symptom can be a yucky, persistent cough.Yikes! I am all for the better safe than sorry attitude so we will are headed there for an appointment in the morning.  My poor baby!
Here is proof that I tried to get a picture of him in his cute valentinish t-shirt but he was not feeling it.
He did a little hiding behind his kitchen...

 Then showed me his cute belly instead of the shirt...
 Then wouldn't look at me...
 Finally, a little grin from my eligible bachelor ;)

Please say a little prayer that he does not have RSV and that we get some medicine to help him get some good rest!
