That’s Avery playing in the waiting room at the doctors. Yep, we’re back again. As if they hadn’t seen him enough in his first 6 months of life. We were back for good reason though. For the past week, Avery had been a little off. Runny nose, rash on his face, loose bowel movements, very cuddly and clingy, wasn’t eating as much as usual, and had a little gunk in his eyes.
So, yesterday Avery’s Daycare called saying he had to get checked out before coming back, to make sure he didn’t have anything contagious. And guess what? He does. Another ear infection! As if he hasn’t had enough of those yet. In a way we are happy we know what it is and he’ll start getting better after being on antibiotics for 24 hours, but it’s also frustrating. As two working parents, that means one of us has to stay home with Avery. Oh well, we do what we have to – and we make it work.
Vinay is home with Avery today and so far he’s still cuddly and tired and not eating the best, but he’s only been on meds for 18 hours now. He is in good spirits though – Daddy sent me a picture of Avery giving some trouble to an innocent little penguin…
Are your kiddos sick all the time? Since Avery came a whole month early, we expected ‘complications’. We were fortunate to only have a litle jaundice up front, but once daycare started, as expected, he got sick a bunch. I’ve been told that they either get sick a lot as babies and then it’ll improve, or they’ll be sick later when they are older. Is that true for you?
