Caden's ears.

If you have a child with special needs, you soon come to realize that there is that "thing" that becomes the "thing" that's terribly frustrating. For Caden, medically speaking, that is ear infections. He is home again from school, day 2 now, with a high fever and lethargy. Most likely cause? Ears. And this is the 2nd round of it in as many weeks.

And I'm also annoyed at his ENT. I called them first to see if he could be seen instead of asking his regular doc to see him again. "It's too difficult to tell from your description if it's ears or not - but let us know if it IS his ears because we'll want to see him." ARGH! I truly DO know my son well enough to tell you what's going on but nope, they couldn't see us. So our regular dr (God bless that man) just called in a prescription for us and Caden seems better today.

In other news, I am 27 weeks today. Still feeling good, nesting like a CRAZY woman. Today I cleaned out the closet off the laundry room, cleaned the pantry (didn't organize yet, just cleaned it), sorted through all the craziness we call Tupperware (anyone need some onion holders? I am so a minced-from-the-jar kind of cooker) and cleaned out the cabinet where we put all the small appliances. Felt good, too! Avery and James spent the morning at preschool together - it was Ave's snack day and they had a good time.

I really have not gotten that nesting feeling. I didn't get it when I was pregnant with Noah either. I guess I'm just so tired and I have bronchitis that nesting seems like too much work. Glad to hear you are doing well..

I was a crazy nester as well. Hope Caden feels better soon.

Glad you're nesting! :)

Here's a solution to your ENT problems: get an otoscope. Mine is from www.drmomotoscope.com. That way I can see that the ears are infected and tell the doctor on the phone that I have an otoscope and see that they're infected...saves a trip to the pediatrician if I want to see the ENT (not that our ENT is as difficult as yours is!! Good grief!)

Hope this helps.
