Fighting Sickness – What do you do?

We all came down with coughs this week (and it is so not fun). Zion has had a cough off and on for quite a while now, then it passed to Hosanna. Now the rest of the family has the cough to varying degrees.

Daddy has been booted to Hosanna’s princess bed while I sleep with the twins in our bed – to tend to the coughing and requests for water and milk (we are trying to wean….).

We have upped our vitamins – chewable C, gummy D, and gummy multis.

We are eating more fruits and veggies (which isn’t hard with these kids).

Then today I sent the big kids on a mission to disinfect. Elisha did the bathroom, Malachi did all the light switches, and Moses did all the doorknobs.

It is time for a big deep clean, but I am trying to wait until we all feel a wee bit better (aka – being able to breathe without coughing).

The television has been on more than I would like and we have watched some educational videos (like the science experiment DVD’s and Mathtacular from Sonlight), but you do what you have to do (and you do your best not to feel guilty, right?).

Between you and me, I think the house is making us sick, but at this point we don’t have any other living options so we need to do the best we can to get through this.

If you think about it, could you say a little pray for us all to get feeling better. Thank you.
