Today started out sooooooooooooo bad. The kids woke up incredibly early, it was difficult for me to even go brush my teeth, they didn't eat a good breakfast and both of them were sick. (It was one of those days where I asked Anna "do you want orange juice or milk?" "Milk" I poured the milk and gave it to her and she says "I want juice." So, I did give her juice and it wound up on the floor, so I was mopping the entire kitchen floor by 9:30am.) Anna has had a cold for 10 days and Noah started to get a cold this past Thursday. Noah cried through breakfast and Anna coughed through breakfast. I decided to call the doctor. I called right at 9am and they told me to come in at noon. We had SO SO SO MUCH to do today, so I took the kids to one city that is 15 miles east of my house to run some necessary errands and then drove to another city 10 miles west of my house to see the doctor. Noah's temperature was at 100.2, on Tylenol and Anna's temperature was good. Noah essentially cried through the entire visit, which is just not like him. Anna was given cough medicine and my poor, little baby boy was given an antibiotic for a double ear infection. I feel so bad for him. He really hasn't eaten much and he's so tired, but he won't sleep unless it's nap time or time for bed. My biggest concern (which those words do not even describe my feelings) is Noah's fever which has spiked to 104. Early today he was on both Tylelonol and ibuprofen and his temp was still 102.6. So, needless to say, this has been what I've been doing today. I feel so bad for him. (did I say that already?) His little lips are red and his head is so warm, but he's the best boy in the world. I've attached some pictures from tonight and some pictures from his first day of Sunday School yesterday. I SWEAR I didn't know he was this sick. I feel just terrible. But, what can you do?
Eating applesauce! YAY!! (103.5 degree fever in this picture) He's finally playing. This was after eating some dinner and eating yogurt and strawberries. 102 degree fever. I just love this picture.
Sunday School Pictures!
(this is a picture of Noah, Anna and their friend Kevin from Sunday school, we went to get Noah's haircut after church and Kevin and his family were there. I loved the way the three kids played together.)
