Another "first"

Dominic had been fighting a slight cold for about a week and a half. The cold progressed into a cough and on Friday a fever. We made an appointment for Saturday morning (how much do I love that our ped is open on Saturday!) and within minutes, Dr Flask informed us that Dominic had his first ear infection...and it's a double ear infection. Poor kid!

Saturday night Dominic fell asleep around 8:30, at 10:30 he had vomited all over himself and was very upset!! Long story short, he was once again running a fever and ended up coming to bed with us and after LOTS of tossing and turning-fell asleep around 4 am. Needless to say none of us were well rested today.
Today Dominic was his happy self, but looked a bit groggy all day and we were battling his fever on and off. Oh and by the way, Dominic is teething HARDCORE to boot! He's been up twice already tonight and it's not looking promising for a restful night. It's tough on all of us, but Lou and I will absolutely sacrifice sleep, evenings, etc for our little guy.

I don't want this entire post to be sad so here ya go! Oh and Dr Flask informed us that being in the water had nothing to do with his ear infection and he can still swim!

Hope he feels better real soon!!! Poor guy. :-( Doesn't look like he's letting it get him down too much.
