Another ear infection

Well, yesterday, I decided to put Sophie in the ergo carrier while I mowed the yard- I really needed to pick up the leaves, and the girl would not let me out of her sight, much less let me put her down. She was having a grand old time when I realized that she had been quiet for a few seconds. I called Aaron over to ask if she had fallen asleep, and this is what he saw. Man, she was OUT! It was also her first dose ever of robitussin, so I guess that had something to do with the 4 hour nap that proceeded. (Yes I know not to give my kids cough syrup, I also have sense enough to put my kids out of their misery). Anyway, last night she burned 103 fever all night, today she screamed basically non stop from 8 am on. So, off to the doctor we went. $75 later and one much needed antibiotic shot, we realized she has another ear infection. We will be seeing the ENT next week to get tubes put in so that she doesn't have to go through this again. She seems to be feeling ok tonight, but I am hoping she wakes up bright eyed and bushy tailed in the morning for her big party.

On a side note, we got a High def tv this week. Man, I feel like I am seeing tv for the first time. Its absolutely incredible. I mean, honestly I can not imagine anything more clear or crisp. It feels like you are looking out the window. I guess being married to Mr. TV engineer has its perks, I am sure he wired it some special way or something. I am sure he will get mad that I am not describing it any better, but I am telling you, I almost refuse to watch shows now unless they are in HD. Now, talk about spoiled! And, I complain about my kids being spoiled, listen to me!
