Welcome to baseball season and sickness season! I can't get both of my kiddos well at the same time. It's so frustrating and heartbreaking to see them not feeling well. 3 Wednesdays ago, Ty was sent home with suspected pink eye. Well, I don't think it was pink eye because I had to keep him out of school for 24 hours, and his eye was fine. But he started having trouble breathing over the following days, and we took him to the doctor to make sure his lungs sounded okay since in the past, he's had problems with bronchiolitis. His lungs sounded perfect.
2 Wednesdays ago, Emily was sent home with 101 temp. She had to stay home from school on Valentine's Day and miss her party. She had a double ear infection but started feeling much better after just one dose of Azithromycin. She was very excited about going to the doctor and getting bubble gum flavored medicine for 3 days. Dee and I didn't get to take advantage of free babysitting at church on Valentine's night since Emma-bucks was sick. But he did go get TX Roadhouse take-out, and we had dinner after putting E&T to bed early. I would show you a picture of the flowers Emily picked out for me, but they are on my camera, and Dee has the camera cord in his office and keeps forgetting to bring it home.
So we think we're done. Her ear infection comes and goes, and Ty seems very healthy. In fact, he had a well-baby check-up Monday, and he did great. Then I get a call yesterday (Wednesday again) afternoon. Ty now has 101 temp. We figured he caught what Emily had last week. But Dee just got back from the doctor, and Ty is starting to get bronchiolitis again. We have to give him breathing treatments again. And he has a bacterial infection, so he is now on Azithromycin. He is staying with his MeMe today because Dee and I are almost out of sick and personal days. I don't really mind since he acts like his normal self and doesn't have much fever anymore. If he acted like he felt yucky, I would take a day off anyway.
To top things off, I now feel like I have a brick in my head. I feel so sick. But here I am plugging away just trying to make it through to the weekend. Thankfully, Dee will be home today around 6, and he will be bringing dinner from Jason's Deli with him. Yes!
If you have read all of this, you deserve a picture! We love bathtime, and the kids love to take a bath together. Here are some bath pics! Notice Emily is washing her baby's "hair." This is how I keep her from trying to wash Ty's hair :-)
