Blinded by the Light

Pumpkin had a terrible night with her cold!  She didn't fall asleep until after 2am. 

Then, Fuzzy was up at 3am complaining of a sore throat and feeling stuffy, too.  Not a lot of sleep for me, until I slept in late.

Both stayed home from school and went to see the pediatrician. 

I was certain Pumpkin's ears would be infected, but surprisingly hers were clear and Fuzzy's were infected instead!  Ugh!  A round of cefzil for him!  Both had the quick strep come back negative, but we did the overnight one for Pumpkin, just in case, since she wasn't leaving on antibiotics!

Never a dull moment, as they say! 

be well,
Dawn

I just want to know-Do you get group rates if everyone's sick at once?  There must be some pretty potent bugs out there, it seems like everyone is sick.  Hope tonight is restful for all of you, and the kids feel better really soon.  
The cats just made me laugh so hard.  I love it.

So sorry.. sore throats and ear infections yuck. Hope everyone gets well soon pull out the Lysol. I don't know if you have ever seen but they have some bath stuff that smells like vicks and man it is awesome when you're sick to just soak in it. The have an old version and a baby version at the local WM.
