The 4th and final Williams monkey has succumb to the ear infection trend (well, at least I think he has). Brady woke up at 12:45am crying, very hot, and telling me to "kiss his boo boo ear." He was up several times throughout the night, totally unlike him. I decided that since the doctor had offered the antibiotic as a "just in case" measure earlier in the day, that I would go ahead and start him on it in the middle of the night. I spoke with our doctor (we saw another doctor at the appointment with Brady and Cara) later today and she wasn't too thrilled about giving him antibiotic without seeing him, but she agreed to go ahead with it. Eli is completely back to normal and Cara is doing much better. Allie is having a really hard time sleeping, is very stuffy, and has a bad cough. She smiled a lot today though and seemed a little less fussy. Brady is doing okay, but I can tell he doesn't feel well overall. My refrigerator could pass as a pharmacy right now...4 bottles of antibiotic and about 12 vials of Hep-Vanco, along with 4 drawers of medical supplies in my kitchen.
Please be praying that all the kids will feel better soon. We need to get rid of this illness so that Brady can have his surgery next Friday! I am in the beginning stages of planning a "Bye Bye Tubies" party for Saturday night:)
The reason for the title of my post is this...I'll be taking tomorrow night off! Matt and I are headed away for a 1 night belated anniversary getaway. My mom and Matt's parents will be holding down the fort. Please pray for them too! We are a little uneasy about leaving the kids not feeling well, but honestly have been couting down the minutes until we can get out of here. We totally need a 36 hour break from our world. Any guesses where we are going?
ps...THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU RON, SANDY, AND MOM!!!
