We made it past this one. It was a long haul. We went from cold, to ear infection, pneumonia, to stomach flu. We were prescribed a nebulizer. They hated it! After a little practice, Brett got a system down. It looks cruel, but sometimes he could get them to laugh and a few times sleep when doing the treatment. The good news is they recovered before their birthday. We only had three ear infections this winter and a lot of colds, but it wasn't that bad. I would take an entire winter of that over the flu that we had late fall.
