7 Weeks of Sickies

This is how Ayden looked for about 6 weeks off and on he was miserable:
So we haven't really been up to much since the boys birthday except being sick so the boys ended up sick a few days before there birthday with a horrible cold around Feb 10th so we figured thats all it was so we just went on about our business and a week or so went by and Caleb started getting better but not ayden, then Ayden started having fever's and he had them for about 4 days and then he started saying his ears hurt so we took him into the dr and he had a fever of 102.6 and he had 2 horrible ear infections and a horrible sore throat but it wasn't strep, so they put him on an antibiotic that they said was a pretty strong one so it should do the trick so he was on that for the full 10 days and he was acting so much better and then all the sudden after the 10th day of the medicine he started coming down with fevers again he had them for about 3 days so we took him back and they tested him for strep again and the flu this time and nothing and his ears looked great so they couldn't figure out what was up with him and all his fever's that he kept having so we took him home and 2 days later his fever broke that was on a thursday, he was fine all through the weekend and then come monday of last week he started getting fever's again this time they were in the 103's so we watched him for 3 days and then he started saying his ears hurt again so we took him back and sure enough he had a horrible sore throat again this time full of Puss and horrible ear infections again and a fever of 103.6 and he was so out of it he would just lay there so they felt that they needed to put him on this 3 day shot called Rosefen(however you spell) OMG that was the worst thing I have ever had to experience with my kids oh it was awful that shot was the size of my Progesterone shots that I had to have for 10 weeks in my hip and that long oh it was so sad they had to put it in his leg and because he is so skinny they couldn't even get it all the way in cuz it would have come out the other side ya it was awful, Ayden screamed bloody murder and then he couldn't walk or move his leg for like 2 or 3 hours after and he had to go through that hell for 3 days, well he is now doing better but we went back in on tuesday for their 2 year check up finally ya I know it was like a month and a week late. Anyways they checked Ayden and needless to say he was traumatized from the moment we pulled into the parking lot he started screaming and didn't stop until we left it was horrible, anyways they checked him out and he still has lots of fluid in his ears and they are still pink but not red and it looks like the infection is going away but they are concerned that he might have to have tubes because that fluid could be doing damage to his hearing, so we have to go back in 3 weeks to see how things are going and then decide from there if he will have to get tubes or not.
It just sucks because he went 2 years with no problems never sick and then all the sudden he has been so sick 6 weeks out of the 7 and luckily Caleb has been fine he had a fever on sunday and was pulling at his ears but monday he was fine and the dr. checked him out and said his ears look great. Anyways other then that they are both doing the one weekend Ayden was actually doing okay mav and Danielle took them to the Aquarium this is the only pic she gotThe Dr. said Caleb is very small but doing good he only weighs 22lbs 8OZ and he is only 34 inches and a quarter so he is only in the 30th percentile for height and in the 10th percentile for weight but he eats all the time so he just has a great metabolism.
Ayden is in the 60th percentile for height he is 35 inches and a quarter and he weights 23lbs 8OZ so he is exactly 1 inch taller then Caleb and 1 pound heavier then Caleb, Ayden was always the lighter one but now he is bigger then Caleb, which is so weird because if you looked at them you would think Caleb weighed more cuz Ayden is so skinny but I think he weighs alittle more just because he is a bit taller anyways they are both growing like they should and doing great.
So the one nice day we got the boys had to take their jet ski's outside and ride them up and down the driveway they love their jet ski's that their sissy mav gave them thats what they call her is sissy:
Sorry for the novel

Sounds like a tough month! Poor guy. Glad to hear that he is doing better though and hopefully he won't have to get tubes. Madi went through a spell where she got frequent earaches, but she outgrew it and we haven't had problems with any of our others. Hope you all stay healthy for awhile!!
