Poor little man...

So, Brenden woke up yesterday with some pretty big (for him) eye goobers yesterday, but I didn't think much of it because he's been having some toruble breathing at night, and I know that tends to affect me in some odd ways like that... But, then Dad called me at about 12:20 to say he'd just had to clean more out of Brenden's eyes about the same size and slightly yellowish-green. So I had to get a hold of the doctor and arrange for Mom to let Dad use her car to bring Brenden out while she stayed with Micaila because (of course) my van is still at the mechanic's shop where it's been for a month so I had Dad's van out here at work. (It's a 17 mile drive one way so I didn't have time on lunch to run home and back.) Dad took him to the doctor for me, and guess what...

Poor booger's got a sinus infection, double ear infections, and infection in both eyes... I feel so bad for him. I've been there so I know how miserable he has to be feeling most of the time - and yet - he's still acting "normal" most of the time - part of what allowed me to think the issue wasn't anything serious before leaving for work yesterday. He's now on antibiotic twice a day for 10-14 days (until it runs out), and eye drops 3 times a day for 4 more days. I do have to say his eyes are looking MUCH better after just 3 doses of the drops so I'm sure he'll be his little devil self for Xmas...

Now to keep Micaila from catching anything... They leave with Mike for Long Island about 11am on the 26th for a 8 days.
