Not to be left out, today we discovered that both of Alexander's ears have "bad" ear infections that "look like they've been bothering him for a while." Based on his other symptoms (like not eating much and sleeping in today till 11:40) and hearing his cough, doc says it could be bronchitis or pneumonia as well. Didn't need to officially diagnosis the last two as the azithromycin would help all of it. Poor guy has been miserable for nearly a week but I had no idea he had an ear infection (or 2 rather). He's never had one before. Rapid strep was negative and they're doing a full culture.
His daddy is really sick with a cold. Since he's prone to pneumonia and we were already in the building, I made him go to convenient care. While waiting I took both kids into the women's room. Alexander made an escape. Just as I was about to get security as he could not be found, a nice lady in the waiting room pointed out the table he was hiding under. (sigh) People actually giggled as I hauled the two of them outta there to the car to wait. Karma will get 'em.
Sophie and I have the cold crud and when momma's grumpy, everybody's grumpy. Blasted winter! Now back to American Idol. Ya, I admit it. I really like the guy singing now who recently lost his wife. Nice guy. Good pipes. Hope he goes far. Same goes for the piano player who happens to be blind.
