Ben’s fevers returned. Last night he didn’t sleep well at all. His temperature was over 102 again even though he acted fine all day yesterday. (And yes, it was a rectal temp – the only way to measure a baby’s temperature if you ask me!) He seemed to be particularly uncomfortable when we put his hearing aids in. Since all this began with a runny nose, we suspected an ear infection. Mark took Ben to the pediatrician today, and now he’s on amoxicillin too. We’re not absolutely sure Ben has an ear infection since he has such tiny ear canals that we can’t really see his eardrums. On the bright side Ben is 9 lbs 13.5 oz. He has managed to gain a few ounces in spite of being sick. He got his 2nd Synagis shot – his pediatrician thought it would be OK for him to get it today.
Jonny is feeling better on his amoxicillin and is back to his naughty self.
Isaac brought home a note from the school nurse. It seems he failed his hearing screen at school. I suppose it is not surprising since Isaac had a recent ear infection, and may have some residual middle-ear fluid. So he needs to see the doctor too.
The two older boys are mere days away from getting their flu shots…..
We had no luck with getting the Nintendo Wii. We have our copy of “The Twilight Princess” but no console to play it on!! 😦
