Snot

So Piper has had a snotty nose for about 2 weeks. I'm not sure what to make of it. She had a fever the day after we got back from my grandmother's funeral and that was a day or two after the snotty nose started. The fever ran for about a day and then no more. I figured, whatever it was (something viral), she was getting over it. But it continued. No other real symptoms, just the snotty nose. I keep dismissing the notion that it's seasonal allergies because she's been on Zyrtec now for several weeks and when I missed 2 doses this weekend, it was no worse. Generally with Bryce and Caroline you can tell if they've missed a dose of their allergy meds. So is it just a long cold? I keep wondering about teething too but would it be like this?

I don't know. I just want her little nose to be clear again. It's not runny per se, just snotty with occasional runnyness. I need to make her 9 month checkup appointment too. Why didn't I make it already? Man, things are just creeping up on my lately.

Piper had a fever, so you're probably right that it's viral... but thought it was worth mentioning that Simon has been really snotty for the last 2-3 days and he seems to be FINE otherwise... he's on Zyrtec and Singulair too... is something outside peaking right now? I was curious. I REALLY need to make the boys' appts with Dr. S. You guys goign to be there anytime soon? We could entertain each other. ;)

Erin I TOTALLY need to make C & B's Dr. S checkup too!!!! Hmmmm. I'm going to email you b/c we should make it at around the same time on the same day. I keep putting it off b/c I'll need to take off work and I've been taking off so much lately. But this would be an added bonus.
