Fevers, and Ear Aches, and Strep, Oh My!

Oh what a week it's been, and there seems to be no end in sight. Christopher was hit hard with strep throat and tonsillitis. High fevers and no appetite had him feeling so lousy. Once we got the antibiotics into him, the strep cleared up quickly. But, unfortunately that was not the end for him, as he developed a really nasty head cold. Just as the week was ending and Chris was starting to feel better, poor baby Joe succumbed to the illness. He has had a lousy head cold and now has a double ear infection. Poor little sweetie. There is simply nothing worse than sick little kids. Needless to say, sleep has been at a minimum for all of us! I feel like I could use a caffiene IV !!! Let's just hope that Joe begins to feel better soon so that we can make our planned trip to Chelmsford this week! We are planning a party to celebrate Chrissy's 3rd birthday with all our family!

  1. You might try and EarCheck (www.earcheck.com) to assist in diagnosing and monitoring an ear infection. It is a great little tool; I used it last night and it works. If confirmed an ear infection so I gave her some Tylenol to sleep and then went to the doc this morning who confirmed it. No more unnecessary trips and co-pays. It is great peace of mind!
