Riddle Me This

November 29, 2008 7:00 am

What’s worse than a seven month old with a bad cold and a double ear infection?
Do you give up? Are you sure? Ok, fine..

The answer: A very sick seven month old AND a twenty-three month old who ALSO has a double ear infection and terrible cold.  Also? The mother of those two kids who is coming down with something similar and the fact that neither parents have gotten more than four hours of sleep out of the last thirty-six hours.

For the second day in a row, I haven’t got anything interesting to share but I’m still here for the sake of NappyBlowMe. Elliot hasn’t been sleeping all week so we took her to the doctor on Wednesday and discovered that both ears were infected. On Thanksgiving night, Graham was up from around 11PM -3:30AM and back up again for the day at six. We took trip to the doctor on Friday and learned that his ears are infected too. He’s going to the ear nose & throat doctor as soon as I can get him in since he’ll probably need tubes in his ears.
Both kids are grouchy and irritable and so are Jamie and I. I haven’t had a chance to answer emails or check on your blogs but I’ll be back around as soon as things settle down here. Hope you guys are all enjoying your long weekends….

    Tough to feel grateful under the circumstances, huh?
    Well, I guess the best I can wish for you is that you reach that point of fatigue and sleep deprivation when you feel punch drunk silly. You know, you get another gift from the spirits on high: over time, you forget all these sleepless moments, but you remember a lot of the baby bonding moments. — Come to think of it, I’ve forgotten a lot of other things as well. Hmm. Well, maybe I didn’t need those brain cells anyway.
    You can be thankful next year!
    Peace, Casey!

    How appropriate is that smurf village devastation? Poor babies. Poor parents. Hope you’re all feeling better soon. Putting tubes in Max’s ears really helped him, he hasn’t had an ear infection since April despite tons of gross snotty colds. It also made for a saner me. 😉 Yay sanity.

    Okay, Casey, you don’t know this about me, but I have the power to WILL colds away. Seriously. No one in my immediate family has been sick for 18 years. So here goes:

    There you go. You’ll start to feel better any minute now.

    Yuck! I’ve soooo been there, except luckily it was only ONE kid with the double ear infections. Tubes were like manna from heaven for us! I hope you all get to feeling better soon!

    We’re all sicko at my place, too. I’m hoping we don’t have a repeat of the holidays we had last year when every member of the fam was on antibiotics! Hope you all get well soon. 🙂

  17. steenky bee

    Oh honey, I do hope you get feeling better. Maybe you should just strip down nude and rub Vicks all over yourself. Not really, I just wanted to see if Jamie took “nude” off the bad list.

  18. shonda

    You have my full sympathy. I’ve been there MANY times.

    Sorry everyone is sick. I know that sucks … especially when the mom is sick because we just have to keep going anyway.

    And what’s this about having something interesting to share? You mean what we post on our blogs is supposed to be interesting? :-p

  21. Katie

    Aw man, that sucks! I hope everyone feels better. Poor Graham, hopefully the tubes will help.
    We’re not getting a whole lot of sleep around here either, maybe this virus is making it’s way up the East Coast.

  22. jen

    so, could you remind me again … how do you do it all?
    ’cause seriously … ear infections across the board are incredibly sucky … and you are still managing to comment at my place.
    are you super woman?
    or do you just not sleep because of blogging and not sick kids?
    OR do you blog with sick kids on your lap? (that would be the best option)

    So sorry! I hope they are feeling better!
