Sick Little Lady

Sorry for the delay in posts, I have taken a few pics and videos lately, but have been very busy and sleepy, therefore, blogging has not been a priority. Little Hazel has been sick for several days. She has a horrible ear infection, some dehydration (her little hands and feet have even been blue off and on from it) and a gastrointestinal virus (which is causing the diarrhea). She has had diarrhea for 6 days, a temp for 4 days, for the last 5 days she has barely eaten more than 4 ounces of anything in each day (her sore ear is making sucking on a bottle impossible) , and she is in horrible spirits (crying, moaning, etc). Oh... and not sleeping at night. Josh and I are exhausted. We have both had to miss some work this week to keep her home. She is one sick little girl. I am really starting to get worried about her. If no improvement by Saturday, I am going to try and take her in again to the walk-in clinic. She does have a follow-up in a week and half but it is hard to wait that long. The antibiotic she is on is making the diarrhea worse, so nearly every diaper change also needs a clothing change. I will update you as she gets better.

She is not contagious believe it or not (since it is an ear infection) so she has gone to daycare yesterday and she will go part of the day today, but she just feels awful.

Gus is his normal, crazy, happy, funny self. Thank goodness (knock on wood while crossing fingers) he is not sick yet.
