I hate being sick!

So, Luke, Emmett and I are all sick. I think it was weather changing, over drinking/exhausted, and for poor Emmett-an ear infection. We haven't slept in days. Emmett has been waking up at night and not really going back to sleep. He just takes a short nap and then screams. We never would have suspected an ear infection though. He has never once tugged at his ears or any of the tell tale signs. Anyway, after another long night, we decided that there has to be more than teeth going on(He has another huge molar coming in at the moment! That makes four in the last 2 weeks or so!). We spent the morning at the urgent care clinic. Emmett also started wheezing this morning. Worrisome due to the fact that Luke has such terrible asthma. The doc at the clinic was awesome. He and the nurse worked really well with a cranky, drippy nose, teething/slobbering almost 18 month old. We immediately started Emmett on a heavy antibiotic and will hopefully get to sleep tonight.

We just took his temp again after he woke up from his nap and he is now running a 102 degree temp. Called the doc and we are pumping him full of Motrin to try and break the fever. I don't see sleep in our future....

Emmett got a postcard from Grammy and Poppy today! They are in their motorhome on the way to Nova Scotia. Sounds like it has been rainy but beautiful all the same. We miss you tons and travel safely. Grandma Debbie and Grandpa Mark are on their way to the Lake for a trip. Talk to you soon and have a great time!

Here are a few more Emmett photos and a quick video of the kiddo!
