Yucky Ears...

Anderson started to feel crummy this weekend. We thought he had just caught the cold Fletch went to the doctor for last Tuesday! F-Mac just couldn't shake a bad cough so we decided to take him to be checked out. If you know Kale and I well, we don't jump to the doctor too quickly. We are more "wait it out and see how they do" parents. We knew it was time to take Rooster to the doc when all 26lbs 13oz of the kid wouldn't take a nibble at his food. That was a big sign he was really sick, so we made an appointment for this afternoon. After bedtime last night I didn't think we were going to make it until this afternoon. In fact, last night was horrible. He screamed and tossed and turned all night long. I had a feeling it had to be his ears the way he couldn't lay on them. He kept falling asleep sitting up.

The doc took one QUICK look in his ears, after a battle to even get close to them, and confirmed what we were afraid of... double ear infections. What can I say, the kid knows how to do things all the way the first time! Meds are on their way home with daddy, and until then he is just chilling, reading books, and drinking smoothies. I am praying for good sleep for all of us tonight and that baby Roo will be feeling grand soon.
