Sick baby....

It all started way back on Tuesday when Landon woke up. He felt a little warm and seemed like he was coming down with a cold. Things went ok on Tuesday and Wednesday. Then in the middle of the night on Wednesday, Landon began throwing up. He only threw up a couple times, but definitely was in the midst of a cold. Over the day on Thursday and Friday, Landon continued to run a fever and slept most of the day. I was already off work, because our daycare provider was on vacation. It seemed as though Landon was feeling better by Friday evening, and even attempted to eat some supper. Through the night and into the morning on Saturday, Landon was definately not feeling well. Landon's temperature reached 103.6 degrees. I called the clinic and they had an opening. That was nice because we didn't have to go to the ER. We got to the clinic and they said Landon was really straining to breath. The diagnosed Landon with brochiolitis and a double ear infection. The nurse did a nebulizer treatement before we left which helped dramaticaly. Needless to say, we are now fever free, but not pain free. Landon's ears still seemed to be bothering him, but we have only had two doses of antibiotic so far. We are also doing the nebulizer treatments at home (we bought the nebulizer when Landon got RSV last year). Those are not going so well. I had lots of plans for our vacation, but it mostly consisited of rocking. That's ok, I'm just glad to see my baby on the mend!
