Bless Your Heart!

Monday before last I picked Miller up from school and he slowly walked up to me and said, “I have a cold and an ear infection.”  He had been a little stuffy when I took him in that morning, but I guess it got worse.  When I got him home and opened his lunch box I saw that he had not eaten his pizza and left his Capri Sun untouched, I knew he was sick.  Uh-OH!  I went ahead and took him into the doctor and he was diagnosed as having an Outer Ear infection and a cold.  Yep, he diagnosed himself.  What can I say, he is a genius!  He had ear drops for 5 days and we thought we were back in business. 

This Monday when I went to pick him up from school and he was asleep in the office.  His teacher had let him go up to cool off because he had gotten hot at recess and had a headache.  Turns out that he had a fever.  Womp, womp womp!

The next day was supposed to be the end of school beach day for his class and he still had a fever so he had to miss it.  He was absolutely devastated.  I took him back to the doctor and this time he had a sinus infection.  Poor baby!

Meanwhile Jackson was able to go on his class’s field trip to Blue Lagoon!  He even got to ride to the ferry dock with his teacher.

It took another couple of days for Miller to get better.  The stuff that came out of his sinuses was crazy.  He had to be so uncomfortable to have all that up there in his head.  He is still on antibiotics, so hopefully this will kick it to the curb!

The next morning Jackson woke us all up at 5:00 am because he was itchy.  It was dark and I just put some lotion on him and told him to go back to sleep {it was dark in my defense}.  When he got us all up around 5:45 we saw why he was so itchy…SEA LICE!  Sea Lice are jellyfish eggs that get into the skin.  No Bueno!  Cortisone cream and Benadryl are the only things that help.  Despite these he was still so uncomfortable!  Poor baby!

I counted from the top of his leg to the knee he has 112 bumps on that one spot alone.  I think he has between 500-600 over his body  Can you imagine having 500-600 mosquito bites?  500-600 bee stings?  I feel so bad for him.  He started feeling better yesterday, but still has a fair bit of discomfort.

This morning I was reading with him and noticed yellow crusties around his eyes.  Off we went to the doctor, again!  We now have eye drops and some prescription cream for the sea lice.photo 2 (3)

We have some visitors here now and the boys need every bit of energy for all the fun they have planned.  Hopefully the whole family will be fit and fine for the Fourth of July!
