Baby sick, mommy depressed

My 14mo son has what I think is a very bad cold.. runny/stuffy nose, cough, low-grade fever, fussiness, and clingy. He is absolutely miserable. I've been getting more and more depressed as the day has gone on because I HATE seeing him that uncomfortable. There is nothing I can do to make it better other than just hold him. He has a doctor's appointment tomorrow though.

Does anyone else get depressed when their little one is sick?
