Well, it's been a while since my last post. We've been taking care of a sick baby for a while now. Max has a cold as well as bronchiolitis and an ear infection. Poor baby! This is his fifth cold since October and he can't seem to get better and stay that way.
Two weeks ago he got a nasty cold that turned into a double ear infection and he was really miserable. That cleared up over the weekend and as soon as he was feeling better, he got another cold. Monday morning we discovered he had developed another cold and had a temperature of 104.2. His fever really scared me, but Tyler stayed home with him and took him to the pediatrician. She thought it was probably just a virus and would clear up on its own. He continued to get worse this week, so I called them again this morning and we went in for another visit. His cold has now developed into an ear infection and bronchiolitis. He's now on his second round of antibiotics.
The poor kid can't catch a break! He's not been to school in about 3 weeks, and Tyler and I are taking turns staying home with him to try to get him feeling better. This week Mimi and Pal took care of him Wednesday and Thursday so Tyler and I didn't miss another day of work. I know they always enjoy their time together.
Hopefully now that we've started antibiotics again, he will be feeling a little better in the morning. Here's some photos of our little patient...
Poor baby looks pitiful. We've been trying to get him to sleep a lot so he will get better quickly. He loves being swaddled and sleeping in his swing.
Mimi tried to find his tickle bugs
Max was too sick to go to school on Thursday, so Mimi and Pal babysat so Tyler and I could go to work. They had a sleepover Wednesday night and played all day on Thursday.
Max loves when Daddy reads him books
Even though he feels rotten, he loves to have his bath and get a scalp massage.
