The good news to report:
Actually, the GREAT news is that Landon has gained some weight...WOO-HOO!!!! He went from 19 pounds 10 ounces to 20 pounds 2 ounces in two weeks. I guess I was doing something wrong huh? (mommy guilt! mommy guilt!) We'll just stick with the plan of shoving food into his mouth at every opportunity, and maybe he'll be back up to his "norm" soon.
The BAD news is this:
Kid #1: Landon STILL has an ear infection and he is on a new antibiotic. The very same one that gave us a RAGING case of thrush just a few short months ago. (JOY. At least we still have the medicine we need if it does sneak up on us again.) Plus, he's nursing a LOT less, so hopefully that will help.
If his ears don't improve in the next 2 weeks, then Dr. Cook is going to refer us to an ENT. I'm a little scared of the possibility of tubes, but if it helps him, then I'm all for it. I'm glad that the Doc is being assertive about his treatment too, and not just blowing it off.
Kid #2: Colin has a touch of bronchitis. He's wheezing a little bit, which I hadn't noticed (mommy guilt! mommy guilt!). I could tell, though, that his cough had gotten a lot worse. SOoooo, HE is on a Z-pack, and some kick ASS cough medicine. If his cough doesn't improve in the next 3-4 days, it will be breathing treatments for him.
I'm just praying that I can keep all of this medicine straight and not give the wrong stuff to the wrong kid.
Another job I didn't realize I had signed on for, pharmacist and 24 hour, on-call nurse.
They're my boys though....they're worth it.
