Can some one turn off the light?

The sick monsters are back y'all and it seems they have taken up a permanent residence at my house. All I keep picturing are the Municex commercials where the nasty phlegm pulls everything he owns out of his suitcase and starts to furnish a room. GROSS! Once again R3 sick. Two weeks ago he an ear infection now he has a double ear infection. We are now going to an ENT. (Ear, Nose, and Throat Specialist)

We went through this once before with R7. When he was just 9 months he had tubes put in his ears and all was right with the world again. I thought we had really beat this ear thing with R3. He never had the trouble his older brother had. But since the beginning of the year we have had nothing but trouble.

I know there is a light at the end of the tunnel but when the light comes on in our bedroom at say 2 am the tunnel seems endless. I am sleep deprived, well I was I stayed home today with R3 and we took a nap. I love naps. Anyway I am hoping this round of antibiotics with along with his sinus meds. will clear him up and we can get on with the tube in the ear thing.

I do have to say this all I see are dollar signs $$. There goes some of our stimulus money. GO Government! The ENT fee, the surgical hospital fee, and the anesthesiologist fee. Why can't we just pay once and be done? Oh don't you love it. It is never ending.

All I really want in the end is for my baby to get some much needed relief and me some sleep. I think since he is spending the night at the lake with Grandpa and Grandma I am going to take advantage of the situation. Spend the next 30 minutes trying to do the endless cycle of laundry, go snuggle with R7 for a while and then...go to sleep. Sleep ahhhh glorious sleep.
