Sleeping the day away

All of my children are napping as I sit here at the computer. It's nearly 5:00 in the afternoon, and we'll probably have a difficult time getting them to sleep tonight, but I don't mind. They're exhausted. They're sick. Darren and I took all three of them to the pediatrician this morning for their routine "well child" checks...but they're not well. Not a single one of them! All three have terrible colds, and Dylan and Meghan have ear infections--both of Dylan's ears, one of Meghan's. (Caitlyn's ears are fine, but she was due for one of her vaccinations so she had to have a shot!)

Ironically, I was initially feeling a little guilty about not having taken Meghan in sooner (because although she is nearly eleven months old, today's visit actually counted as her nine month check-up.) But! If scheduling hadn't necessitated my bringing her in with the older two for all three of their check-ups together, we might never have discovered her ear infection! We've been giving her some children's Dimetapp recommended by our pharmacist to treat her cold symptoms, and she hasn't given any indication that her ears are bothering her, so I probably wouldn't have even taken her in otherwise. I'm so glad everything worked out the way it did!

Oh, dang! Get well soon. I have figured out one thing and it is this; sick sucks.

Well said, eh? ;)

Hugs and 'bountiful blessings' to all of you-
