So today makes five months in a row that Little Man has been sick, three months in a row with an ear infection. His jugular lymph nodes have been inflammed the entire time.
I'm exhausted, I'm hungry all the time, and I feel nauseous before and after I eat. I'm not sure I can handle another round of antibiotics. I'm not sure I can handle the whining because he's not feeling good.
I know. I should grin and bear it. Be a big girl myself.
But you know what? I'm tired of taking care of everyone. And I know it's only going to get worse.
Good thing is that the doctor did put in a referral to an Ears, Nose, and Throat Doctor. Like most referrals within the military system though, it could take forever. Let's hope it doesn't. Because all I know, in four weeks exactly, if something isn't done, he's going to get another ear infection.
Oh. And the other good thing. LMA can tell me when his ears hurt. So much better than guessing.
