A little cold coming on
Randy starting coughing yesterday and this morning his breathing was a little loud because he was congested. It has now turned into a cold with the runny nose and slight fever. I am grateful for the Internet because I still use his thermometer from the NICU (they send you home with all the tools from the bedside). Well they use metric in the NICU. So his thermometer reads the temperature in Celsius. I cannot convert in my head, but I remember that they always said it should be no lower than 36.5 C and no higher than 37.1 C. Randy's temp was 37.6 C (99.7 F). This is nothing a little Tylenol and rest can't take care of.
