poor guy...

Even though I've gotten less than 3 hours of sleep each night...it is totally worth it to be able to hold, rock, and try to make Alex feel better. I took both boys to the doctor on Tuesday. Evan has been getting better, but I just wanted to be sure since he had been coughing for so long.  I had them check Alex too since he was having a runny nose and pulling at his ears. They said it was just a virus with both boys and to treat with tylenol and motrin. That night, Alex is in the worst pain ever. Not sleeping, crying, coughing bad, throwing up, and running a fever. I call back to the doctor in the morning to get him seen again. I'm hoping it is not an ear infection because he is getting his tubes put in his ears on Monday. The doctor checks him out again and sure enough...ear infection #6. :( He also has bronchiolitis and possibly RSV. I'm really glad I took him back in. Even though I did get a few stares from the nurses saying "weren't you here yesterday?" It's totally worth it to make sure he is getting healthy and not getting worse. Our doctor couldn't believe in less than 24 hours, how quickly he got so sick. I guess it was mommy intuition or going with my gut knowing it was something worse than a virus. Or the fact that he was up all night :)

Regardless, tomorrow is round 3 of the rocephin shot and I'm hoping it does the trick to make the ear infection go away and make his fever go away so he can have the ear tubes put in on Monday.
