Its been a hard week. You know when our kids are sick... our job as mom and nurse can get really stressful at times.
Long story... Wesley has RAD (reactive airway disease) so for years I have been using these ' Lil Critters Immune C plus Zinc & Echinacea' as soon as I hear a cough or seeing a cold coming on I can start these and it will really help. If I feel a scratchy throat I will take some of these and it really helps. We have tried others when these were out of stock and nothing compares. We have been out of them for over a month and I with summer I just didn't think about it....
So yesterday we made another trip to our doctor. Just Wyatt and me. They love alone time with mom... even when they are sick! The pain on Wednesday night was horrible for him. I felt so bad. It started with one ear and then it was both. Dr. Reese said he has infection in both ears (inner ear) and they are bulging and one has some blood. He changed his antiboidic and talked about referring him to an ENT if it wasn't better in 10 days. Talked about it may rupture...
I would like to tell you he is better but ... he isn't. He is still hurting. I have to keep motrin in him. When we were at the pharmacy they informed me they did not have the liquid antiboidic and would have to order it. We tried another pharmacy but they didn't have it either... (can you feel my stress rising?). They gave us a few pills... (he hadn't tried swallowing pills yet) and said I could pick up the rest today. We live at least 23 miles from anywhere. He did swallow the first pill last night... but the second pill he could not swallow even after trying several times.
So I will go this afternoon to pick up the new antiboidic. Hopefully tomorrow we will stay home ALL DAY.
Been rearranging our school room/dining room. Trying to organize and plan my school year. I started it this week but then had to stop.. so it is really a mess in there... but first things first.
Sorry so long... just wanted to share why I haven't posted and also to ask you to pray that Wyatt's ears will heal and both boys (and the rest of us) will be well.
