long week

Roman has his first ear infection. It is NO fun! we've had long nights and medicine has quickly become our friend.

It started a week ago sunday. He was coughing a bunch. Then it went to being super tired but not sleeping. The worst was thrusday night when, he woke up after only an hour of sleep and we could not settle him down. The only thing that finally worked was for me to take a bath with him and for him to nurse a bit. He was pulling away like crazy and tugging at his ears. I had told ty that we were gonna have to go to the DR in the morning. We had just gotten a crazy amount of snow the day before (24 inches!) and he had to go out to the driveway to get the car ready for me to go in the morning. It was a God thing because right then the City of Siloam plow truck got our street. WOW! it was the first time they had all season! so we just felt that God was taking car of us!

We got to the Dr first thing Friday morning and sure enough, he had an ear infection. We started on antibiotics and alternating pain meds every 3-4 hours. Today is the first day he's finally close to normal. PLUS he only woke up 6 times last night so momma finally got some sleep!

Glad he'll be better before Nebraska State Wrestling in just two days! (Go ISAAC!! WOO HOO!!)

  1. Aidan had ear infections every other month from 7 months-2 years. It was horrible. He just had one on Christmas Day and then I think he just had another one, but we chose not to go to the doctor because he only had one night of being up all night. No fun!
