What a Night

About 7:00 tonight I told Avery to get the clothes out of the dryer. He walks into the laundry room and grabs his head and starts crying in pain. I asked him if he hit his head or what was going on. No he said it hurt. So a little while later he was sitting in the chair crying and holding his head.

This is always when I'm at a loss as to what to do. I mean it is really bad or are you playing it up. So I called the Dr's office and talked to the after hours nurse. I tell her what's going on and she says we need to go and be seen. That is so not what I wanted to hear. I guess I wanted her to tell him to knock it off!

I wanted to know all the possible things that could be wrong. I didn't think his ear drum ruptured, he wasn't hurting that bad. And he didn't have a fever so I didn't think he had meningitis. But his eyes were puffy and his nose is runny so I'm sure he has a sinus infection. I told him to go take a hot shower and see if that didn't help.

So he watched tv for a bit and then I sent him on to bed. A few minutes later I hear him crying in the bathroom. And I hear this odd sound. I go in there asking if he's throwing up. No he's got his head in the sink running water in his ear.

Ok, we're going to the ER. But guess what? I don't have a car. It's waiting on new struts. So I called Mike's aunt Linda. She came and took us to the hospital. Mike was already at work by then so I didn't feel like waiting an hour and a half for him to get home.

You could tell my poor baby didn't feel good. But he's such a good patient. Come to find out he has an ear infection. So we didn't get home till almost 11 and Zachery had a ten minute nap in the car and was no longer tired.

Both kids are finally asleep and Mike is on his way home. I've been trying to wait up for him but I'm getting tired. I tried to call the bus driver but her phone isn't working. Which means I have to get up at 620 to tell her he's not going to school.
