Dorian has been sick off and on for about 8 weeks now. He had a fever, a runny nose, a cough, another fever...and then an allergic reaction to an antibiotic and a bad ear infection. Throughout all this, he stopped eating well and lost 8 ounces. Fortunately, he is now almost done with his second antibiotic, the cough and the ear infection are gone, he is eating much better, and he has regained the weight he lost. Unfortunately that still only puts him in the 1.5th percentile for weight. Should we all just keep our kids home all winter? And ourselves? Or is this really "good for their immune systems," like we all keep hoping?
