He’s on the mend.

February 9, 2014


Lloyd feels better. He stayed in bed all day Saturday and most of Sunday. (He actually got out of bed because he had some night sweats and the sheets needed to be washed. Bleh.)

It’s a chest cold, I guess. He’s taking cough medicine and something with acetaminophen, which is what caused the night sweats. Huh. Anyway, he likes when the humidifier is going, except we have a fairly spastic model that churns out the steam like a locomotive going through the house. Pair that with a fairly cool upstairs, and we have a moisture problem. I came home after an installation service at church, went into my closet to change clothes, and my shirts were damp. Zoinks.

I am drying things out with a fan so I don’t wear moldy clothes to school.


(The curtains were closed, that’s why it’s so dark.)

It’s so cold outside, the windows got crazy wet from condensation.


…… And we have another problem. It drips down, seeps through the sash, and makes…..


Yeah. We’re not running that thing upstairs anymore. Sorry, Lloyd’s lungs.

    It looks like you’ve got a vapor barrier problem. (I actually have no idea what that means -- it is something my Dad always says. The corollary to this statement is, “Water is the enemy.”)

    Icicles on the inside! Very cool!

    And just how long has Lloyd had this problem of wetting bed?


  3. Peggy Said on:

    ….the bed?


  4. Brad Said on:

    You shouldn’t have taken the humidifier out. You should have put a dehumidifier in. I’m certain that is the solution to your problem.


  5. Kristi Said on:

    I have never seen indoor icicles. Did you break them off and lick them, or did you use them as swords?

    Please stay warm and well. No more emergency room visits because a cold lingered to long and turned into something much worse. (Moms are to bossy, I know but just because we care about you)
