Poor Anna!!

Our poor little girl is SICK! She woke up absolutely miserable this morning so we headed straight to the door. She tested positive for RSV and has a double ear infection. He said on a scale of 1-5, she's got a 5 in one ear and a 3 in the other. Poor thing! I can't imagine how bad that must hurt her little ears. So, she got a shot today and we'll start a round of antibiotics tomorrow to take care of everything. I'm pretty sure Ella has picked up the RSV, but we've got her on breathing treatments and her inhaler so hopefully that will take care of it. It will be nice to get everyone well and back to normal. :-)

Anna has learned how to drink out of a sippy cup and enjoys playing with it in her highchair during dinner. I took these pictures yesterday when she was still feeling halfway decent...she was NOT smiling today.
Another little note - Ella has become so protective of her baby sister. I kept her out of school today because I thought she was running a mild fever this morning so she went to the doctor's office with us. When she found out that Anna was going to get a shot she absolutely did not like that! And later this afternoon when I was trying to clean up Anna's runny nose (Anna gets hysterical when you try to wipe her nose - it's crazy), Ella said "don't hurt my baby sister!!!" I just think it's sweet that she already wants to take care of her. ;-)

Oh, Suzanne. I am so so so sorry. Will has a double ear infection plus a rash due to a fever all over his body and a lot of drainage in his throat. It is miserable. I can't imagine having that plus RSV. Hang in there. I really hope that Anna gets better and that Ella doesn't come down with it. Hang in there.
