Love hurts.

M – This was the first time (it started about 2 weeks ago and lasted for a week) that our Mango was sick for an extended period of time, and it was so hard to see. Not just because we were sick also, but because there was so little we could do to help get better faster. So sad. 😦

Too sick to have fun

One of those days she spent it entirely in on lap or another. Normally a barely contained bundle of energy, she barely even complained when we had to aspirate her and get some mucus out (like vacuuming her nostrils).

My blankie and my momma. My dose of love medicine

It was one of the few times we let her keep her soother in her mouth. I mean, how cruel would that be, to take that scant comfort from her?

That was one of some very long days indeed.

She’s better now though.


  1. OOOh i hated that first cold and not being able to do anything but be comfy furniture. Just wanted a Cure. Looked like you all did great. Best wishes

  2. Tx. She survived and so did we. Back to full throttle for her. 🙂

  3. Glad you survived, but what a looooong week this was! One feels so helpless and so sorry for the little sick one!!

  4. Hope *cough* no-one got sick helping her. Say too sick to be help to themselves. Hope all is well. 🙂
