Sleepless Nights

Well, so much for the girls getting better. I was up all night with both girls crying over earaches and bellyaches. I probably got 3 1/2 hours of sleep. Now, I know that I can function on this, but not very easily. Gracie spent over an hour with non-stop crying - pulling her ear and saying belly hurts and then another couple of hours trying to sleep, but whimpering. About the time I got her back to sleep enough to put her in bed with Alex, Lillie got up with a fever and saying her ear hurt. I took Lillie to the doctor this morning and she has a double ear infection. Alex was able to take the day off work to help take care of the girls, he too didn't get to sleep too much, but a little more than me. To make matters worse, the medicine for Lillie is not very good - even with adding more flavor to it - and extremely hard to get her to take it. I am hoping to get to nap a little this afternoon. Please pray for my girls that they get over these ear infections quickly. Thanks.

  1. We'll keep you guys in our prayers! It's always an awful feeling when little ones are sick and it seems nothing you do makes them better!

  2. Thanks for the advice! Every time he has bit me I stopped nursing him until the next session and he has stopped, but I am very vigilant at the end of each session as I don't want to be bit again!
