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.
