It's Friday night, you know what that means...

a trip to the urgent care. This totally SUCKS! Honest to God if you have been with me since I first started this blog you know that this isn't our first Friday night visit to the urgent care. Annabelle was totally fine all day long and then at 6:30, totally out of the blue, her ear hurts. Thank Goodness there is a tornado watch, everyone must be scared and at home because for the first time ever the urgent care was almost empty. This was a total bonus because it was my turn to take her. Last time Tom took her it was over 3 hours. Not tonight. We were in and out in less than 30 minutes. So 30 minutes and $50 later Annabelle has yet another ear infection. This is our 3rd month in a row. It breaks my heart when we go through this because she is in such awful pain. We are going to get an appointment set up with the allergy/asthma people to see if we can get to the root of the problem. Keep your fingers crossed for us. We have to wait until Monday to schedule an appointment but I'm guessing that they probably won't get us in until June or July but I guess we'll see. She seems to be resting on the couch now that she has some ibuprofen and antibiotics in her system. I hope you are all having a much better evening!

Darn it! This sure has been a rough month with sick kids! Andrew is seeing a pediatric pulmonary doctor Monday morning. Perhaps we will figure something out for him.

That's the way those ear infections go sometimes. I remember going through that with Sam and Ben.....and then, out of the blue, with ME on the 4th of July many years ago. I hope that Annabelle is feeling better by now. Take care....
