One Sick Squirticus
A cold, double ear infection, temp of 102+, ickiness coming out both ends, and an inability to swallow antibiotics and tylenol without retching, all make for one sick little man. Poor baby. When we realized the tylenol was a no-go, we placed a wet baby washcloth on his head to try and bring down the temp. It was actually kind of cute, and D didn't seem to mind too much. Next I had to employ the "vomit catcher," a.k.a. the plastic bib. He was rapidly running out of clothes, so drastic measures were required. Poor kid was taken to the doctor's office - twice! - in his p.j.'s and bib. Luckily, a hospital visit was not required, unlike the two little munchkins seen right before us. Today was not a good day in pediatrics, if the state of the waiting room was anything to go by. So we'll consider ourselves lucky we got off so easy!
