Just Over It Already

So, the family is still sick.
Hunter was put on Cipro Saturday and he has had side effects that people don't normally get. He gets really intense nightmares. He woke up Saturday night screaming at the top of our stairs, while Brandon and I were downstairs, crying too. We go up to find out he was still sleeping but awake. His response to why he was up..."I need to check on Ren". Ok, I went into Ren's room to make sure she was ok and daddy laid him back down. Later that night, around 2:30 or so in the morning, he comes running into our room screaming again. What the heck is going on?? Laid him back down. Same thing happened Sunday night as well as last night. I called his Dr. and she said in all her years she has never had a call about nightmare being associated with Cipro. Um, well excuse Miss nurse, our kids have been firsts for an awful lot of things with that hospital and CF. The Dr. wants him off Cipro for a few days and put back on Nasacort to see if maybe it's post-nasal drip that is causing his coughing. So that's where we're at at this point. We will see if he sleeps through the night tonight being off the Cipro.
Ren, is all congestion and coughing from time to time.
I as well as daddy are in the same boat with this stinkin cough and the nasal congestion. I have been sick now for 5 days and wondering how long this will last.
We were sick and didnt do a whole lot of anything over the holiday weekend. We were to go to my mom and dads to celebrated my mom's birthday but had to postpone that. Miss them and I was so diappointed that this happened. I'm praying this weekend we will be able to get together.
I'm just ready for us all to be over this already.
I'm hoping for the post tomorrow will be some happier news.
All in all, we are all ok and no kiddos in the hospital with any respiratory problems because of whatever this is. So, that is good.
Dear God, please cut us a break. Please just let us all get better. Please comfort us tonight and let us all get a good nights sleep that we are so in need of. We trust You Lord. In Jesus' name, Amen.


  1. is he getting better now? You may try Nin Jiom Pei Pa Koa (ninjiom-hk.cwahi.net). i know alot of people use it, its also non alcoholic, though it's effectiveness is not as good as alcohol based cough medicine, but it's still good to use on not so serious coughs.

    What an awful time for you all. Bad enough when our kids are ill but for you all to have it must be hard work!

    Sophie goes really aggressive on cipro and alot of parents here in the UK often comment about weird side effects when their kids are on it.

    Really hope things pick up for you all soon.

    Thinking of you all.
