Rough week

I am ready for our house to get back to normal. It all started last Wednesday....
Shawn and I volunteered to serve at our church's community meal on Wednesday night. His parents came over to watch the kids for us. When we got home I bathed the kids and put them to bed. I could hear Gauge on his baby monitor moaning. I didn't think too much about it at first because he does that sometimes to get himself to sleep. When he didn't stop, I thought well maybe he needs another bottle. I went in to feed him, but he didn't want it. So, I put him back to bed. He was really restless. At midnight he woke up screaming! Shawn went in to get him and he was burning up with a fever and puking. So amongst all of the crazy thunderstorms, Shawn ran out to Kroger and got him some pedialyte. In the morning we got him in to see the pediatrician and found out that he had a double ear infection! So they started him on Amoxicillin.

Two days later, we found out that a baby in Gauge's nursery had a confirmed case of whooping cough. So I once again got back on the phone with his pediatrician's office. As a precaution they told us to stop the Amoxicillin and called us in a prescription for Zithromax.

He seems to be feeling better and getting his appetite back. Throughout all of this he has become daddy's little buddy. It's all about da-da lately :)



Yesterday when we came home from church I felt really tired and sick to my stomach. I felt like a big lump....no energy whatsoever!!! So, I laid down in bed and took a couple hour nap. When I woke up I wasn't feeling too much better! So, I went to bed early last night and my wonderful hubby got the kids to bed, packed lunches, and made bottles! I'm still not feelling 100%...but hopefully the worst is behind us! I want us all to be HEALTHY for our long 4th of July weekend :)
