Two on Antibiotics and One Failed Hearing Screen…

Isaac & Jonny Asleep

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!!  😦

    Are the boys sleeping on what used to be my bed? They look so cute– like a pile of puppies.

    Yep, that’s your bed. We found them like that one morning recently and couldn’t resist taking a picture. 😉
    I was just glad they hadn’t found their way to OUR bed!

    LOL. When was this picture taken? Morning? It must be such fun to have a brother.

    Hope Ben gets rid of that pesky fever. How often do they test your hearing in school up there. I remember having my hearing tested once in all my life.

    Well at least I know what you guys want for Christmas….a Nintendo Wii!!!

    In light of our pending (or impending, depending on your point of view) arrival, I think you should title the pic of Isaac and Jonny “The calm before the storm”. My two are WOUND UP about the visit and I think we’ll feed them twinkies and soda the whole ride east. See you soon!!!:-)

    Dawn, go for it! Karen & Mark can do with the excitement in their lives. I cannot imagine Bryson & Ian being WOUND UP but hey, I’m sure the Bryson boys are just as excited.
