We're still alive! Barely. This blog has been majorly neglected recently, but I'm out of the kids-are-sick haze that I've been in for the past week or so. Liam had a double ear infection and pink eye (ick!), then (of course) Jake got pink eye, too. Liam was so miserable, he was up all night for days. Oh, and did I mention that Brian was out of town for all of this? Good timing for him, terrible for me!
Fortunately, my mom was able to help out (THANK YOU, GG!) otherwise I can guarantee that I would have lost my mind. Liam had his 9 month check up (I know, 9 months! I'll do a full post on that later) and they rechecked his ears; one had totally cleared, the other was still infected. Boo. He has 2 more doses left of the Augmenten (I have no idea if I spelled that right--it's also absolutely nasty tasting and he hates taking it, can't say I blame him) so hopefully that other ear will clear up soon.
Jake's pink eye is now cleared up as well....have you ever tried to put eye drops into a 4 year old? It's kind of like wrestling a rabid monkey. An alarmingly strong monkey. 2 grown adults pinning him down, and somehow he still rallies enough strength to avoid getting the drops IN his eye.
I promise to catch up on posts soon....it's easier for me to blog now that my hands aren't raw from sanitizing them 9,856 times per day.
