This little boy has been sick, sicker than any of my other babies ever were. It all started with a simple cold and cough. At least, I thought it was a cold and cough, but the cough kept getting worse and I was getting worried.

Last Monday, Brendan broke his toe. As I walked into the pediatrician's office with Kieran in my arms and Brendan by my side, Kieran started one of his coughing episodes. The secretary heard him and stated, "That baby needs to be seen. He sounds like he has whooping cough." Anyway, to make a long story short, he was put on antibiotics and tested for pertussis. The culture came back positive which meant that the rest of my family was put on antibiotics too.

We've had some sleepless nights, but we've all finished our antibiotics and are no longer contagious (even though most of the children and my husband are still coughing).
Kieran is smiling again and we are getting more sleep.
