Sick again ....

Katie & Maddie have both been down w/ a cold. Coughing and hacking and all the crap. :( Early Sunday morning (1:30 a.m.) Katie woke up w/ an earache, so I gave her some Tylenol (can't have ibuprofen yet b/c of her laceration). Then gave her the home remedy of olive oil & rubbing alcohol (which didn't help). Then finally a warm compress. Then I put her back to bed. 3:30 rolls around and it still hurts, so I rewarm her compress back up and put her back to bed. 4:00 comes around, and it still hurts. By now I'm thinking "why didn't the tylenol work?" So I gave her some codeine left over for her kidney stone pain. That knocked her out. However in the morning she was still hurting pretty bad, which is very unusual for her b/c the pain usually goes away immediately w/ meds. So I take her to Urgent Care that afternoon, and turns out she had an ear infection so bad it made a small small hole in her eardrum b/c it had to get out!! OUCH! So, she's out of the water for 4-6 weeks (we just got out of ONE restriction and now we're back on another restriction? MAN!) -- unless she wears ear plugs. Gotta love those bright orange ear plugs. :) So, she's on 2 types of antibiotics & our "oh we hate this so much" prednisone for her coughing. When she gets sick, it triggers her asthma, and she has to go on prednisone (a steroid) to help her to stop. When Katie is on this medicine she's hard to live with. :) Off the wall outbursts, uncontrollable, etc.

Last night I took the girls to a kickball game and they had a blast! Katie just now learned how to play kickball not too long ago. She made a homerun. Maddie was so cute to watch. As soon as she kicked the ball she ran to 1st base. Then when the next person kicked the ball she stood there on first base and just clapped her hands and jumped up and down until someone yelled "RUN MADDIE!" so she starts her little run to 2nd base. Usually the person is at the base by the time she starts running. This happens at every single base. LOL She doesn't understand the game just yet, but she loves kicking the ball and loves to jump the line just to kick it and run.

Today is our first day of summer vacation for the girls. Their last day of summer school was yesterday (Monday). I now have off Tuesdays & Wednesdays, so we'll start our adventure today!!
