The Face of Misery

If you happened to be at my house at 1:00 a.m. the past couple of nights, you would have seen lots of this. Our poor boys has his first ear infection, which has been accompanied by a fever, eye infection, croupy cough, and runny nose. The nights have been rough to say the least and our plans to escape Ohio early this weekend have been foiled. His antibiotics seem like they're kicking in today so we're hoping for a better night tonight!

I feel for you. I know how helpless and scary it is when your otherwise very happy little one is in such pain. I hope tonight is better and that you are able to escape tomorrow. Safe travels.

Stephanie said...

Ear infections are AWFUL! I always know when my kids are sick because that is the only time they cry at night. Too bad my husband is part of the school that believes that antibiotics aren't always the answer for ear infections - that causes a lively argument at our house each time. Hope you are all sleeping better!!

Poor guy and poor mom and dad. I have a 13 mth old daughter so I can really relate to your posts about them getting so big.

When they have a bad night/day/owies, we do, too. So tough sometimes. Good luck and get better vibes!!

oh no- nothing is worse than an ear infection in the middle of the night.

Hope the little guy is feeling better and you have caught up on your lack of sleep:)
