My little guy is having a rough winter so far. We are currently battling 2 viral infections (URI and HFMV), 1 bacterial(ear infection) and 1 fungal(Candida rash) all at the same time. He seems to be doing well for it all, but it sure is taking a toll on us. He has no diagnosed long term effects of prematurity, but his immune system is certainly slow to fight this stuff off. We spend so much time in doc offices, therapy etc. and have only had about 2 weeks illness free all winter. Just the other day I started to put away all the medicine syringes and various instruments thinking we had turned a corner, only to pull it all out again tonight. Oh well, we forge on. Just needed to vent a little.
