Sick Kid and Tired Mommy

Last night Ella's fever spiked to 104.5 again. Needless to say I didn't get much sleep because I was constantly going in to check on her. She's so cute. She kept telling me that she was fine. By morning it was back down to 100 or so again.

I called the clinic this morning and they told me to bring her in and get her checked out. We trekked out in the snowy weather and made it there about an hour later. (We should really find a closer clinic, but both the kids like it there, so we go with what works.) Turns out she has an ear infection (both ears). I never would have thought that was the problem because she said nothing hurt and she's only had one ear infection before and she was only about 18 months old.

Stopped at Target on the way home to pick up her antibiotics (hopefully these ones won't give her hives) so hopefully she'll get better soon. Today was the first day of school that she's missed. The doctor was surprised when she realized Ella's only had antibiotics once before. Sam's never had any yet. I guess we keep the kids healthy. I'm telling you that extra Vitamin D supplement really helps!

Sorry I have not been around the blog for close to a week, but I to will try to do better. We were sorry to hear about Ella's fever and ear ache. Happy to hear she still likes her swimming lessons. Yes it has been cold and windy here also. I bet the kids still want to go outside for a little bit (maybe not). We know what Romeo thinks of cold weather.
