Matthew has had a cold for about two weeks. Mommy has had a cold for about a week. Jacob has had a hint of a runny nose and has coughed about five times for a few days. Uh oh. The albuterol rescue inhaler is locked and loaded for the first sign of a crackle or a wheeze. Matt Sr. is healthy. I know that isolating Jacob for the past 4 weeks has limited his chance of infection and definitely allowed him to recover from the pneumonia. But I couldn't isolate Matthew as well and I can't resist kissing all over him... Hopefully I have the worst of it. I have been coughing into my sleeves and washing and sanitizing my hands before touching Jacob or his food. I am hopeful that if Jacob does get worse that he will have enough time to get better before the 22nd. And I know this will not become pneumonia again because he has it so mild right now and I am watching his nose and listening to and feeling his chest for any signs of breathing difficulty. And no fever. Fingers crossed... again.
