Brinley has been battling all kinds of things the last couple weeks. Two weeks ago she got an ear infection in her left ear and was put on antibiotics. She also got pink eye AGAIN. She woke up the other night in a lot of pain in her right ear. A trip to the pediatrician yesterday confirmed an ear infection now in her right ear. She started another course of antibiotics yesterday. Last night she woke up with a screaming fever (none of these ear infections have caused fever) and a massive headache. She threw up, possibly from the pain, possibly from some kind of bug she has caught from who knows where. I'm not sure if she has the flu or what, but I am hoping it passes quickly. Just an interesting tidbit, her good friend Serenity had the exact same thing happen right off treatment, with pink eye and an ear infection. Weird, huh?

The good news: the middle of the night fever was not a "quick, pack the bags and get her to the ER" fever. Those days are gone! We were able to treat it from home. However, I was dying to know what her counts were. It is hard to not have that information at our fingertips.

Don't you wish we could get a cbc with a little finger stick and a drop of blood like a glucose test for people with diabetes? I love that we no longer have to go to the hospital for fevers, but I hate not knowing what Kaidan's counts are - it makes the control freak in me go crazy!

I hope Brinley is feeling better very soon.

I am sorry Brinley is so sick! Serenity has had multiple ear infections, i think she is on her 3rd or 4th since this summer. She has had a raging fever this week and sounds all gunky. I am hoping it goes away soon.

We think of you guys often!

This is Debbie from aerobics (and Brooklyn's mom). We're so sorry to hear she's been sick. It may have something to do with this time of year...everyone seems to get ill when it's this cold for so long! We hope she gets better soon and tell her we both said hi. :)
