Poor kids can't win for losing

Poor kids.

A couple of days after the last blog (2/7) both the kids started to complain that their ears were aching. We took them to the doctor the next day and both of them had ear infections. So we have been giving them antibiotics and they took their last dose today.

The school nurse called yesterday and Nate had pinkeye. We got some eye drops for him and we have to give them to him four times a day for the next five days. The bad thing is I had to work late and after getting the drops I found out I missed Nate's soccer parents meeting. I just called this morning and found out that they assigned teams and the team coach will call us with the practice schedule.

The cat got real sick last week and we took him to the vet. Turns out he had a kidney infection and dehydration. We got pills we have to give him once a day. I looked on the internet and found two completely different instructions on how to give pills to a cat. We went with the real instructions, afraid it would end up being the joke. Fortunately we got them down okay. For the dehydration they gave him a sub-dermal water pack. He looked like a camel until it slipped down into one of his legs so he had one beefy looking leg. No pics - sorry about that.

Kids update

Well both the kids are sick again. I am not sure how it happened for Nate but he seems okay in the morning but by the afternoon he tires down and by night time he is running a fever. If this keeps up we will take him to the doctor soon - will have to because if he misses any more school he will need a doctors note to get back in.

Lexi just had a mild fever until we took her for her four year checkup where she got four shots plus they took three tries to draw blood. I was working from home Monday taking care of Nate when Chris came back with Lexi crying. Poor little girl cried in my arms until she fell asleep. Today though she went to school but was tired when she came back and crashed after we got her pajamas on.
