The kids have been sick with allergies and cold-like symptoms. It sucks. It started last Thursday with Tommy and a persistent cough, then Friday Eddie woke up with a croupy cough, and by the end of the day Friday, Anna was coughing. Eddie was so bad on Sunday that Danny and my bro-in-law Brian gave him a blessing. I took him to the doctor on Monday, but the doc said it was just a virus, and he was mostly through it, and of course, there was no medication for it. The kids are still boogery and coughing today, but hopefully the end is near! They have been cranky and tired, and that's not fun for anyone!
