Last month on the 15th, I took Aubrey to the doctor because I suspected she had an ear infection brought on by a cold. Sure enough, she did. They gave us some antibiotics, simple enough, right? Not really. I took her in for her 9 month (how did she get so old already!?!) well check up and she still had a slight cold and a now double ear infections, plus she'd dropped in weight, which is a bit scary. So, more antibiotics. Well, a few days later she wakes up and I notice spots all over her legs and arms. At first I was thinking it was an allergic reaction to the new type of antibiotics, but after a call to the nurse and a baking soda bath, nope, it's. . . chicken pox. (!) Of course. What else could it be? I was happy that her runny nose seemed to have cleared up in the meantime. Well, now the chicken pox are mostly healed, and she has developed a raspy cough and a runny nose again. I've not gotten much sleep in the past few weeks, plus we have moved in the meantime and boy, I'm tired. Poor baby, I hope she gets better soon. I don't think I can take much more. She is pretty good during the day, it's just at night that she gets crabby. We also haven't been to church in quite a while. I hope that she is well enough this Sunday so we can get back to normal.
