The odds are stacked against me.
It's 9:30 here... the kids are finally asleep.
It's been a long day.
Both kids ran low grade fevers last night... 99 under their armpit, I noted it, but didn't jump on it.
This morning, I noticed Maeve had this chesty sounding cough. She's notorious for harboring pneumonia, so I called the doc. Maeve had an appointment for 1:00.
Then Henry started acting funny. He threw his food off his tray, was shaking his head around and well, just plain GROUCHY.
I called back, and asked to add on a kid. Luckily, they obliged and both kids were seen.
I honestly thought they'd say "Oh give them a few more days off the antibiotics and they should be feeling better." Instead, it was like a "Ground Hog Day" or something.
Both had their ears checked and throats swabbed.
BOTH have ear infections and strep...AGAIN... yeah.
Didn't we just do this last week???
BOTH are on the same antibiotic- (forgot the name)- but its a "more aggressive" antibiotic, aka "the kids are going to get bad diarrhea and diaper rash."
I am praying for the best. Preparing for the worst.
I've got their antibiotics, claritin, tylenol, motrin, and Bordeauxs Butt Cream.
I have FLORIDA on my mind.
I am picturing stepping off the plane and seeing my mom and dad :)
I can do this. I can do this.
PS- this blog post counts as my "NoBloPoMo" for tomorrow.... ;)
