A Rough Week...

This has been a long week and it's still only Thursday!! It's hard to have sick kids!

Jordan spent Friday and Saturday last week with cold symptoms. I didn't think much of it, but Sunday she woke up with nasty snot everywhere!!! Monday morning she woke up with her eye matted shut with snot. I took her to the dr and had to wait 1 hr and 45 minutes! Our dr said they had received over 100 sick call-ins that day!!! Long story short, she had an ear infection and a sinus infection. Antibiotic for 10 days.

Well, I was suspicious of Lawson, b/c Sunday night he had gotten Jordan's "cold-like symptoms." Wednesday, he woke up with some gunk in his eyes, so I called him in an appointment b/c I was pretty sure he had the same thing. Well, his eyes were way worse than Jordan's had ever gotten. By the time of his appointment yesterday afternoon, he had tons of little "floaters" and gunk coming out of every hole in his head. Doc walked in and said..."Mmmm-Hmmm..I see why you're here!" So...Lawson had a DOUBLE ear infection and a sinus infection AND (listen to this...) Some ORGANISM in his eyes causing this puss. That's right, I said ORGANISM!!! Disgusting!

I know Dr. Newby is a lurker out there...any insight on this??? (By the way, I cleaned before you came, and I didn't know about the organism before you came...sorry!!!)

Jordan is actually a little better today--her eyes have cleared out a lot, but we are dealing with yucky diapers from the meds! Lawson, on the other hand, is still very yucky. He woke up this morning with both eyes matted completely CLOSED! He woke up crying "My eyes are cwosed! My eyes are cwosed!"

So...on the busiest baby week our class has had yet (a shout out to the Allens and the Smiths!), we are holed up in the house, Purell-ing like crazy, Lysol-ing like crazy trying to get these crazy kids better! With 5 days of crying, yucky kids, it can only go up from here, right?

So...if you happen to say a prayer today, would you throw our names into the mix?? I would appreciate it!! :)

Oh sounded bad when I talked to you on the phone, but the pictures make me even more sad! Poor babies, and kudos to you momma for holding everything together!

Sunny said...

They look pitiful! I've been thinking about you guys all week. Hope that everyone gets better quickly!

Patriot said...

Ah that makes my eyes hurt just looking at it! Hope they're both feeling better!

Well, I just wanted to let you know that I stopped by your blog! I was wondering if you have any favorite American made products? I'm trying to compile a list of quality products that are still made in the USA. Come check out my site and let me know if you have any favorites. I add new links everyday. I don't make any money off of this - I just want to see more jobs stay here in America - and high quality products that are safe.

Please stop by and let others know as well!

Thank you!


I've been thinking about you and your kids and wondering how everything was. I guess I'm a little late on the post since I've been gone, but better late than never. They look so pitiful in those pictures...especially Lawson. Made me want to cry for them and for you. I know it has been a rough week...even a rough few weeks with everything that has happened. Hope things start looking up really soon.

Hope the kids are better. Especially Lawson, with the "organism".

By the way, who is "Patriot"?

I think your kids passed me the crud through cyberspace. I've had a heckuva week fighting similar symptoms. :-(

Stacy, Hey! I found your blog here and wanted to say hi. Sounds like you have had a rough couple of weeks. I hope that things are looking up for you. I enjoyed reading about how things are going for you. Kathy (Keller-from HU)
