We are starting on day three of one sick Fynnie Fynn. What the heck? Like getting two consecutive front teeth isn't enough for this week. Well only one has broken through, but the other one is right there.
Nope. What started out as a mild teething fever has turned into double ear infections, a sore throat (possibly strep... I suppose we'll hear on Monday) and, tonight, vomiting. With any luck, the vomiting was due to getting fever reducer (we're onto the children's medicines now... infant stuff isn't cutting it) right after the antibiotics. But if, when it's time to take the next dose of amoxicillin, your child's fever suddenly goes from 99.4 (the lowest it's been since Wednesday afternoon) to 103.1, you don't wait for the stomach to settle.
As with last night, Tom is taking the first shift of snuggling a diapered baby who's wrapped in wet towels. Last night my shift started at 12:30 and went straight through to morning, so I'd better get some sleep.
If you are a chanter, a prayer, a sharer of good vibes or thoughts, or a sender of white light, please, do it now. And maybe send something for the future. This is Fynn's second set of ear infections in two months. Doc said that sometimes there's a link between teething and ear infections; they don't know why. She has a lot of teeth waiting to come out.
