Took the kids to the doctor today

Landon was down right miserable yesterday coughing and since he's 4, I can't buy just any OTC medicine. On top of that Lexi was up every hour last night crying, coughing, stopped up, etc.

I hate taking them in to see the doctor since 90% of the time it's viral. I'm glad I paid my $50 today! Landons did turn out to be viral and I was (finally!) told what meds and dose I could give him. Lexi, on the other hand, had a low grade fever and it turns out she has an ear infection. :( I have a prescription for antibiotics and some Tylenol. Poor thing just looks down right pitiful!! Here's hoping she sleeps through the night tonight so she can get over this quicker.

my oldest has the viral thing too. She's been coughing all night no matter what you give her. She sleeps through it. Lucky for her because I haven't had a decent night of sleep since last weekend.

Thanks. Landon is doing a bit better after taking a nap. He went to bed at 8 too. I gave Lexi a dose of Tylenol but an hour later her temp was 100.8*. I wish I had drops for her ear to at least numb it. :-/

Poor babies. I hope they both get better soon. My dd got a stomach bug, and she threw up at dinner. That was just....lovely. UGH! Anyway, she was acting so whiny and that's not like her. So, when she threw up it was like, "Oh! THAT'S what's wrong with you." We got her cleaned up and put to bed early.

Ugh, I did the same thing yesterday. My 7mos old was coughing like a smoker(we don't smoke and they are rarely around anyone who does). He has an ear infection as well, oh and 2 new teeth coming in.

Lexi hasn't gotten all of hers yet so I'm curious if that could be part of it. The doctor never looked in her mouth after he saw the ear infection. I doubt she would have let him anyway. She is one super stubborn child! Lol
