Basically given them some steam treatments in the bathroom, some robitussin very minute amount to get rid of phegm once a day, a drop of nasal spray in morning and night with steam treatment to keep air ways open, vicks on nose as needed to keep them breathing through nose at night, and wiping eyes and nose when discharge has appeared. So sort of like treating a human cold but the patient is totally unwilling for meds, assistance, and can't blow their nose.
Tabby caught this first and she had it rough but kept drinking water and trying to eat a little. Jasper ate for the first three days mostly liquids and then stopped. I have been assisting feeding and watering him every few hours in addition to medication for the cold that I administered just the same intervals at Tabbitha. My schedule between work and nursing the Jasper is exhausting and no sewing has occurred
Got little sleep last night since I had to wake up and administer meds and vicks, when they feel especially crappy they sleep with me and I wake up and monitor their breathing. Said to Justin that if this is any indication, I think I got what it takes to be parent.
I do get breaks and go out do things, this allows Jasper to sleep and rest between medication and food. Went to the gaming store and got sleeves for a new Magic the Gathering deck, which match the nifty deck box I found at Books a Million. Though the deck itself needs some modification, I will look and see for good replacements from my sideboard. Did sell one gown and had alot of interest in the other, hope it goes too.
Well got to get back to it,
