Sorry for going MIA. My last post was about Ryan getting sick last Friday. He ran a fever late in to Friday night, but Saturday when he woke up, he was feeling a lot better. Still coughing, but not acting sick.
Sunday morning, Brooke started sneezing and running a lowgrade fever. By Sunday evening, her fever wasn't staying below 100 and that was with tylenol and ibuprofen in her system and she was downright miserable : (. Sunday night was ROUGH. She was in bed with me, but woke up every 15-30 minutes (and 30 minutes is being generous). By the wee morning hours, I could tell I was getting sick, too. I also noticed that Brooke's left eye was seeping a ton and was all red. I suspected pink eye.
The kids both already had doctor appointments scheduled for Monday afternoon. Ryan was supposed to be getting his pre-op. physical for his sedated eye exam that was supposed to be this coming Monday (but I called Tuesday and rescheduled it for the 11th) and Brooke was supposed to have her 1 year check up. Instead they both went in for sick visits. They both have ear infections and I was right about Brooke having pink eye. I also had the doctor check Ryan's hearing because it seems he is having a lot of trouble hearing lately, I'm guessing (hoping) from being sick. Ryan was able to hear all the beeps. If he hasn't improved in a week or so, I'll be making an appointment with an ENT, just to be safe.
Here is what Brooke looked like Monday.
She ran a fever all day Monday yet, but it stayed lower than it was Sunday evening. She slept pretty well Monday night (MUCH better than Sunday night). By Tuesday, she was feeling a ton better : ).
In the 2nd picture, Brooke is standing at the TV and Yo Gabba Gabba is on. Personally, I'm not a big fan of that show, but she LOVES it and it's the only show that she gets excited about. It's really cute. And I think I have to give thanks to that show for her learning how to dance ; ). They dance all the time on there and she loves it. She also waves now...started that on Monday. We've been working on that for awhile : ).
And so he's not left out, here's a pic of my little man : ).
