High temps and I'm not talking weather!

To say the last few days have been tough around here is an understatement. We have had sick babies since Friday night. Yesterday we took Max to the doctor, only to find out he has a double ear infection. He finally started feeling better this afternoon, which is when I noticed Claire started feeling worse. She has had a runny nose and low grade temp for two days. After she woke up from her afternoon nap she had a temp of 101.8 so I have her some Advil...by 5:00 her temp had climbed to 105.7!!! This was only 1.5 hrs after the Advil. I immediately called the doctor (office was closed) and they told us to go to the emergency room.

She was looked so pitiful. We felt so bad for her. She was not a happy camper to get her temp taking in the rectal (who would be?!). We got there at 6:45 and didn't get home until 9:45.

She ended up having an ear infection too. She was poked and proded more than she cared for. There was so much ear wax (gross) that the doc couldn't see in - so she had to clean that out :( then we had to wait for the Tylenol to kick in. They finally let us leave when her temp got down to 102.4

She was such a good girl! Thankful my mom was able to come watch Max so Justin could go with me.
Poor things need to get better!
