A Domino Named Sick, Part Two

Mattias spent the last two weekends 'coming down with something.' He got better in between the weekends but:

On Monday, he was pronounced to have bronchiolitis and a double ear infection.

Fritz and I are already pros at the bronchiolitis stuff. Oxygen levels, nebulizer, albuterol. Check, check, check. The new thing, for us, is the ear infections. Can you believe this is our first ear infection in almost 5 years?

I think we've been lucky.

It's tough, this sickness stuff. Tough for the toddler who can't relax, tough for the mommy who is constantly holding the toddler, tough for the older brother who just wants to DO SOMETHING, tough for the daddy who comes home and has to pick up all the slack.

But you already know that.

Poor little guy. I have no experience with bronchitis, but it seems just about any illness with littles is rough. Hope he feels better soon. And that the medicine won't make him more sick. The doctor gave Baby Plum Cefdenir for his ear infection, and his tummy is just now getting back to normal.
