Worry Much?

Linus has a bit of a cold. It's mainly a runny nose which requires constant wiping. However, occasionally, he'll let out this horrible flemmy cough. It isn't all that concerning for me as I know there is really nothing a doctor or anyone else can do for toddlers and infants with a common cold. The most I try to do is keep him comfortable, with soft nose wipes and lots of snuggles, and encourage him rest and nap more.

His daddy, ever the worry wart, is a bit more concerned.

Hubby: Has he been coughing all day?

Me: Only occasionally. Nothing major.

(A short pause while he digests this information.)

Hubby: Does his cough sound whooping to you?

Me: Um... no.

I love my husband for his constant worries. I do wonder sometimes, if not for me, how often he would be rushing Linus off to the doctor's office?


Does this look like a kid who needs to go to the doctor? I don't think so.

Oh my gosh he looks so much older! And I just saw him yesterday! Amazing. And that looks like a healthy kid to me. His immune system will thank you for letting it fight the bugs. :)

Oh my gosh...when did he turn into such a little man?! I can't wait for his next visit to KS - I've got to see this little guy in person!
