You know, the one that should be dropping soon? I think it is time.
Last night BubTar was awake from 2-4am crying and complaining about his "froat" hurting and telling me he couldn't swallow his spit. This morning as the Motrin is wearing off, his fever is climbing. He is miserable. This morning he was too tired to even watch his cartoons on the TV. He asked for lunch, but then he asked if I could put a pillow on the table so he could lay down to eat. Then he asked to eat on the couch, but couldn't sit up. Then he asked me to feed him, but he only took one bite and then he was too tired for more. He actually asked me if he could go back to his bed. He never asks to go back to bed. He fell asleep around 11:45. He usually doesn't nap at all. The last time he was this ill, it was strep. That did not turn out well. I'm trying to keep the kids apart, but I think it is a losing battle. I'm sure he's been carrying this for a few days at least and those two love to cuddle. I'm sure the germy baton has already exchanged hands. KayTar's next episode (if on schedule) will happen this weekend...probably the same time the germs decide to make their presence known. BubTar is going to the pediatrician in the morning.
KayTar saw the ENT yesterday, and she is now medically cleared for the hearing aid. Her ears look wonderful. Now we have to schedule another appointment with the audiologist to actually receive the aid. The ENT is also scheduling a CT of her temporal bones and some additional labs. There always seems to be more testing. Such is life.
