One sick little boy!

Tuesday night we where just heading to bed, when we heard vomiting coming from the boys room. I go rushing in there to find poor little Trestin in a pile! He then proceeded to vomit 4 more times with 4 more bed changes and 4 more jammy changes before settling in for the night. The next day he was a very lethargic boy, with a temp hovering around 102 all day! I peeked in his ears (one of the perks to being a nurse) with my otoscope and saw a very red ear drum! The next day (yesterday) I had a doctor's apt, and had the doctor peek in there too, and he said, "Wow!" So needless to say the poor little guy is on antibiotics now! Here he is on Wednesday vegging out. One of the few times he wasn't in my arms wanting to "nuggle" all day long. He didn't want to be in his bed, he wanted to be out with us. So he settled for the camp chair.
Despite feeling like crap, he still said "Cheese" for the camera! Poor guy. Notice the sippy (of Gatorade, NOT milk) cup in the cup holder. He didn't feel like drinking much once I let him, but he still wanted it close by.
He wasn't awake much that day! His first ear infection at the age of 2 years old really wiped him out! But today he's up and running and playing almost like normal!

Boy, it sure is handy to be a nurse and a mom. It breaks my heart when my kids are sick. How are you feeling with this pregnancy? I wish we could see each other. We've never seen each other's kids. It sure has been too long!

Isn't it amazing how fast they recover. The day after JT and Luke got their tonsils out they were running around. I had to make them stay down for at least one more day to make me fill better.

I'm so sorry about having a sick baby! I'm glad that he is doing better though.
We all seem to be having the viral infection at our house. All coughing and icky noses. Besides being sick I think Mom is the most misrable!

Poor little guy! Brett had an ear infection a couple of years ago, and he whined like a baby for days. He said he finally understood why babies and kids were so fussy and sick when they had them!

I am glad that Trestin is feeling better, isn't it nice that they bounce back so quickly!?

Ear infections are the worst! I am sorry to hear things have been hard around the house. Hopefully no one else starts throwing up. And thank goodness ear infections aren't contagious.

Glad he's feeling better. We've got similar stuff here - only no infection, therefore no antibiotics to hurry these little bugs out the door. Hope the rest of you can stay healthy!

That car blankie looks suspiciously familiar. Either you came and took my little boy's blanket or a certain Sue M. made one just like it for both our boys.

Cute kids :)
