Our first sick visit

Tuesday, May 14, 2013

We made it 1 year and 2 days before Carter's first sick visit to the peditrician last week.  

On Wednesday I was putting him down for a nap and he kept rubbing his left eye.  That night he was fine, then on Thursday morning at breakfast he started rubbing his eye again until it got swollen and red and puffy.  I called the pedi and wasn't sure how serious it was so we decided to wait and see how it looks after a few hours.

We ended up making an appt and the doctor said he had the beginnings of an ear infection.  Who knew?  His eye was back to normal by the time we got to the doctor.  He didn't have a fever and was acting totally normal aside from the previously swollen eye.  She prescribed amoxicillin for him.  I struggled a bit with medicating him, since he seemed perfectly normal.  But we followed the doctor's advice.

Then on Sunday he was obviously having some stomach problems throughout the day and refused to eat and vomited when he did. And he had a 101 fever.  Not sure if the amoxicillin is to blame or a stomach bug, but yesterday and today you can tell he's still not 100%.

He's totally loving on momma, especially from the afternoon on...and by loving on, I mean will not be anywhere but in my arms.  By the time Christian gets home my back is aching.  It totally reminds me of the nonstop-dance-party-back-pain from bouncing a newborn.

He's so sweet and cuddly, but here's hoping that he feels better soon.
