Sick kids

T.G. has an ear infection, but thankfully her tubes are working properly so the infection is draining. Th has been sick since last Wednesday. He woke up with a headache, but after some Tylenol, he was well enough to attend school. His teacher said he was fine while there, but when I got home after my afternoon class, he was burning up. He's been running a fever between 101 and 102 since. He has a terrible cough, and vomits from coughing so much. I had him at the doctor on Friday, and the doctor said it was a combination of allergies and a virus. I had never seen that particular doctor before, and I didn't really care for him.

I did what he advised and put him back on his allergy meds, and it's helped to loosen everything up, but he's still running a fever. I called the doctor back today and am still torn as to whether I will make him an appointment. Ta and T.G. have their well-visits in the morning, so I may just have my regular doctor take a look at Th while I'm there. The poor kid hasn't slept in over a week because of his cough, and he looks terrible. I am on spring break this week so I don't have to miss class to care for him, but I was hoping to accomplish some pretty major assignments to ease my school burden.

Hopefully he'll feel better by this weekend because my sister is coming with the baby and we are planning a trip to the zoo. . .

Sorry to hear that the little ones are unwell, never easy on mom. I would wait to see your regular doc though, it always made me feel better when my kids were little to do that.
Sending plenty of spare Mama Bear hugs your way.

Ug. I was at the doc today too, with coughing and ear pain. I hope he gets to feeling better.

How are you feeling?
