Sick kiddos

First of all, as a follow-up to the "No Ting" post, I'm happy to report that we've found it once again.  Phew!  ;)

Kirsi and Aidan have been sick with colds for a long time.  It's been about six weeks since they got the first cold and they've had two more since.  Then on Thursday, Kirsi came down with a fever and then vomited later that afternoon.  The next morning she woke up with a bit of gunk in her eyes but it went away as the morning went on so we let it be.  Then, around supper time, her fever came back with a vengeance and the gunk was back.  :(  Too late to go to the doctor (and not serious enough to go to the ER) so we continued with the Tylenol and cleaned out her eyes.  Saturday morning, we headed to a walk-in clinic for both kids, as Aidan has a cough that isn't going away and it doesn't sound good.  So, Kirsi got the medicated drops for her eyes and Aidan got amoxicillin and a prescription for conjunctivitis in case he gets it.  Last night, Kirsi had another wild fever so more Tylenol.  And Aidan woke up sobbing that his ear was sore.  So, after an hour of trying everything, we gave him some Advil for kids and hoped it would help.  He did sleep the rest of the night, thank goodness.  They both woke up in good spirits but by noon, Aidan was starting to get gunk in his eyes.  So, off to the pharmacy I went.

They've got lots of meds to take now but hopefully they'll be on the mend.  Being sick is lousy!
