RESPECT

I just had to post that I now have greater respect for my children's suffering when they have an ear infections. The past week, Will and Morgan had an ear infection, then a day later Grey and now 2 days later I HAVE AN EAR INFECTION! I was bawling like a baby and begged Bri to wake up early to take a look so I could get on an antibiotic. I had no freaking idea, that first of all, an adult can get an ear infection. 2nd that it is rediculously painful! I seriously could not function and poor Will just stared at me with a confused look on his face and asked "why are you laughing and crying?" I told him I was crying cuz it hurt so bad and laughing because it was kinda funny and ironic. I then apoloized for making him wait 1 1/2 hrs for Bri to wake up to check out his ears. (he had also been crying and his ear hurt, but I just figured that he could wait) I couldn't even wait 45 minutes! Yep, I am a bad Mom. I can finally say that now 4 hrs later, I am finally starting to feel some relief. I don't know if it is the 2 naproxin, and 2 tylenol I took or the antibiotic, but all I can say is it is about freaking time. I seriously wanted to die. So there you have it. When you are suspecting that your kid has an ear infection, load them with drugs and get them to Brian or your local doctor as fast as you can.

*****UPDATE*****
It is now 11:00 pm and my eardrum just RUPTURED!!!!

I love your medical advice there at the end. Load your kid full of medicine...the end. 2 more days until Macy Bea!! Unless like the freaky vampire baby in Breaking Dawn she decides to just punch her way out...not that I have been fooling around with any vampires lately. I am tired, I shouldn't be commenting crazy things on blogs. Love you and I hope your head stops bleeding.

I am married to a doc, that practically qualifies me to give out medical "advice" When I say "load" up your kid, I mean give the appropriate dosage as directed by the bottle or a physician.

Hey Toni thanks for letting us all know about how much pain the kiddos are in. Luckily we haven't had one in about 4 years but a RUPTURE? Wow. Keep us updated on that.

I feel your pain!!! I can't believe how incredibly painfull it is! My ear drum ruptured coming out of Spanish Fork Canyon after a week at Lake Powell. I didn't knonw adults could get an infection though, so that's a good piece of info to have. I always feel like a bad Mom when my kids have one because they never dig at their ears or cry or complain. I just end up taking them in for something else and the Dr. tells me that they have horrible ear infections and then he looks at me like i'm hideous for not doing something for them earlier. Good luck and let me know if there's anything I can do for you!!!

Kace's ear drum ruptured this past week too, I probably should have had more patience.

Dand girl! Are you doing okay now? I feel your pain- I had a double ear infection once, but I actually thought and had strep throat. My throat hurt worse than my ears! I hope you feel better soon. It's not fun to ahve sick kids and be sick yourself. But how lucky are you to avoid all those ridiculous doctor bills! Dr. Fulks saves the day!
