Tonight's Soundtrack... my son's periodic coughing, occasionally to the point that he sounds like he's going to throw up. I rush in, see if he's awake, and if he is, help him blow his nose. I've already given him the "triple whammy" medicine (fever reducer, cough suppressant and an antihistamine), I'm running the steamer in his room, and I've got him slightly propped up on pillows (but on his side). Still, he keeps coughing intermittently. It's not the noise, per se, that gets me, but rather the knowledge that he's miserable and I don't know what else to do but help him ride out the night.
