Bloody Bronchitis

Both Erik and Luey have it...

Erik has been home since Tuesday, when he went to the Dr and got two prescriptions, Keflor and something else, Bricanyl (to open his lungs, I thought it was a steriod, but Dave isn't sure)... Today Luey went to the Dr, also diagnosed with Bronchitis, his is worse than Erik's, so he's on the Keflor and also Seretide, which is a steriod in an inhaler.

The boys are going to miss Liam's birthday party tomorrow and they're not happy about it. I made the mistake of telling them all week they had to stay in bed, or stay warm so they could get better for the party, and they did all that and now can't go anyway, so they're NOT happy - my bad...

As for me, I feel like my week has been a bust, Dave has been home nearly every day, and with one or both the big boys home as well, it has meant my week is all out of skew, can't even remember what day it is half the time... I hate being in limbo like this...

Whinge, whinge, whinge...

Hopefully next week will see the boys on the mend. I'm really hoping Erik will be well enough to go to scool on Monday, he's incredibly cabin feverish and mischievous atm...

Luey doesn't want to go back to school, so not sure what to do about that, he's quite happy to be sick...

Hugs Sif your poor boys!

I think Bricanyl is *not* a steriod (but don't quote me). DD had it when she was a baby, but tbh, i didn't think it worked that well.

So sorry they are going to miss the party - I guess if they could be contagious, it is for the best.

Just be aware, the cough could "linger" even when the boys are better.

DS had Thurs and Fri off school because of sore throat/croup cough/swollen glands/headache. He missed hockey practice on Thurs night, but managed the game today, and is already feeling better. Thank goodness only panadol was needed. He will *def* be at school on Monday LOL. Hope your boys are better by then too! HUGS!

Yeah, looked up Bricanyl, it's a muscle relaxant...

Bronchitis isn't contagious, it's like croup - people develop it because they are susceptible to certain conditions...

Teenagers and the failing parent...
