Sick Days.... the dreadful ear!

Ivy has been sick for a long time. Not life stopping sick, just mildly, annoyingly sick. To be exact we are on our fourth antibiotic and our fourth ear infection in 7 weeks. CRAZY!! The last 2 weeks our sore ear has been complimented with an ugly combination of an upper respiratory and sinus infection... yuck.

However, we are thankful that it is not the flu.
We are thankful to have excellent insurance for our many co-pays.
We are thankful to be going back to the ENT tomorrow to decide how we are going to fix the faulty tube.
We are thankful that in the midst of our sick days (home together) we are able to play!

Even though we are sick and feverish with gook draining out of our eyes, nose, ears, and mouth (sorry to make you gag) we are still playing and....

Being very creative in picking out our own clothes!


Finding the best spots in hide and go seek!


Practicing for the day we finally become a big sister!


And trying to escape the confines of the backyard!

I love my little Ivybug! Feel better soon, sweet girl!

  2. So darn cute and sweet--even when she feels bad. You need to clarify though--Ivy wasn't visiting the sweet baby (Lincoln I am guessing) when she was feverish and draining goop from her nose, eyes, etc.
