What a week it has been since I last posted! At J's 9 month well check-up last Wednesday, the doctor discovered he had a serious ear infection in his right ear, and put him on antibiotics. The medicine didn't help this weekend, though, when he developed a fever we now think is due to a viral infection he picked up sometime last week. Saturday night was pretty rough, what with J's fever spiking and me feeling pretty miserable due to the weather changes and stress and getting little sleep. Sunday was better. We had to go back to the doctor this morning due to his continued fever and other issues. We get to make a return trip on Friday to get the final word on the ear infection, but in some good news the antibiotics are working and the ear infection seems to be clearing up.
On top of all this, we are getting word of extended friends and family who are in the hospital or enduring doctor's visits, and are praying for all. This is a reminder for me to be more thankful during those times of health!
