Sick Boy

This little boy is not feeling well...at all.  Yesterday during church he fell asleep on me, which is rare.  Church falls during his morning nap time but usually he fights it so hard then crashes on the way home.  Today was different.  He has been battling his molars so I chalked it up to his teeth.  After he got up I thought he felt a little warm but he was asleep on me so I thought our body temperature together had made him a bit warm.  After lunch he was still a bit warm and grouchy.  By the evening his temperature had risen some more and now he was pulling at his ears, his left ear especially.  He decided to sleep on me while we watched the SuperBowl, the never ending Super Bowl.  Rigley slept horrible that night.  He was burning up with fever and could not get into a position that was comfortable because of his ears.  

This morning we went to the doctor.  Rigley is not a fan of the doctor when he is well...now you can imagine how today's visit went.  Today I was "that" mom with "that" kid.  While we were in the waiting room he cried every time the door opened.  He hated having his ears checked and his throat.  It was horrible. He did not want anyone to touch him.  In fact after the doctor was done with him he was so upset that he was laying on my shoulder and I was holding him and rubbing his back.  While I was doing that the doctor decided to listen to his breathing.  He knew what she was doing and kept sticking his hand back there trying to shew her away.  It was so funny.  She was cracking up and so was I.  She did it a few more times and we got a good laugh out of it.  The verdict was a double ear infection.  

This was while we (or I) were waiting and trying to keep him happy....




And this was after the appointment.  A night of not sleeping and lots of crying at the doctor equals one very tired boy.....
