Bronchiolitis

What is Bronchiolitis?
Bronchiolitis is a common illness of the respiratory tract caused by an infection that affects the tiny airways, called the bronchioles, that lead to the lungs.  As these airways become inflamed, they swell and fill with mucus, making breathing difficult.  It is usually caused by a viral infection, most commonly respiratory syncytial virus aka (RSV)

So why the medical info?  This is what both by little babies have.  Additionally, Cynthia has an ear infection in both ears.

With both kiddos sick life has been very different in our house.  I've tried to keep things disinfected around our house to stop the spreading of all the germs.  Both of the kids have been very cranky, which makes mom very cranky.  The older girls were gone most of the day leaving me to wipe most of the runny noses.  With that said I got lots of cuddle time today.  Cynthia is not generally a cuddly baby but today mom was all she wanted.  Darius although cranky had plenty of energy and keep me on my toes.  

Thought for the day:  We can all get sick.  It's what we do when we are sick that leads to wellness.  Spiritual sickness comes from lack of quality and quantity time with God.  Have you spent time with the Healer today?
