one step forward...

Please pray for Claire (and Jen). Claire's cough, which we presumed to be from the teething-drool, got worse on Monday, and her breathing became labored and she developed a fever. Jen took her into the doctor who said she had an infection and prescribed an antibiotic and cough syrup. Problem is, the antibiotic (azithromycin) tastes so bad, we are having a very difficult time getting Claire to take it. Eventually we got about half a dose into her, but it made her wretch and she lost her lunch. Now we are worried she may be getting dehydrated, especially since it was such hot weather today. Mom is exhausted and we are both worried.

Things to be thankful for: I am glad we happened to install the window air-conditioner last month when my Dad was here to help. I am also thankful that Claire's skin has calmed down and not as itchy as before. I am also thankful for my new job, though insurance benefits don't kick in until later this month.
