Louie has a chesty cold. Yesterday he felt really miserable and cried, coughed, dripped, rattled and whimpered. I looked after him in the morning when Kaori was out. Kaori took over for the rest of the day while I worked. Nothing much made him smile. Not even his favourite storybook time with Mum.
He turned the corner today, though, and has more energy. He’s playing and smiling and not coughing much. And, he pulled himself up into a sitting position for the first time.
We’re thankful he just has a cold and not this winter’s terrible flu.
