Aidan: it is just allergies making his eyes red and itchy. Duh! Luckily my Ped gave us a big box of children's Claritan samples so that ought to make the co-pay worth the trip!
Ella: I missed her vax's due when she was 7 months old because she had the cold then ear infection. So she got them when I took Aidan in. She was not a happy camper. I also made her next well baby visit appt for next month.
Sean: Doug took him in for ear tube surgery this morning. I was feeling pretty bad about not going along, it's the first time I haven't been there with him. I just couldn't imagine getting out with Ella and Sean that early in the morning, plus it would be hard to focus on Sean's needs post op with Ella there. Doug said Sean was a spitfire before they took him back, just playful and happy. I packed a backpack with books toys diapers and a snack for afterwards. I also made sure Doug took Sean's baby blanket (given to us by Denver's Children's Hospital after his admission and diagnosis there.) I've taken that blanket to every surgery Sean has and we use it for naps still. Anyway, Dug said he was glad to have it and they took it to surgery with him.
Tubes went in fine, doctor said there was a lot of fluid and yucky stuff behind the drums so it was good timing. After they gave him back to Doug, Doug said Sean was very grumpy and wanted me and wanted to get the heck out of there. He was happy to see me when he got home and has been in a great mood since.
We are off to visit my family this weekend. Doug is hoping to get the deck staircase built for them. I'm hoping to get some summer clothing shopping done for the kids. I think I might have more fun than Doug. :)
