Chase and I went to the Urgent Care this evening.
I haven't been feeling well, sinus pressure and
I couldn't lay down last night due to alot of pain
in my ear.

Chase on the other hand was a little crabby yesterday
and up really early this morning. He never complains.
This afternoon he says "mom, I have a headache".

This means I really have 2 ear infections, the ear drums
are bulging and I really need to go to the doctor.

So off we go. A very short time later, my sinus pressure
has become a full blown migraine.

In the urgent care, master Chase has a sinus infection and
two very seriously infected ears that need immediate
steroids and antibiotics and I have a sinus infection
and 2 ear infections, defintely not as bad a Chase's.

Chase did think is was great to see me get a shot in my
butt. My migraine was making me sick so I got 2 shots.
One for the pain and one for the nausea.

I am so grateful for Priesthood Blessings. Nate and my
dad were able to give one to Chase this evening. I am
reassured that our Heavenly Father will help Chase
heal quickly. Chase has had 7 sets of tubes in his ears,
and several other surgeries, tonsils and adnoids removed.

He has always been such a trooper. The doctor we saw
could not believe that he was only complaining about a
headache. In fact they looked at us funny when we took
him in. After hearing his history, they quickly apologized
after examining his ears.

Now the fun part. The steroids always make Chase
really mean and grumpy and he cries really easily.
I guess I'll be keeping him home tomorrow from school.
No straining, so we can keep those ear drums intact.

I am off to bed, early for me, but I really need to sleep.
And I need to keep an eye on Chase through out the night.

Happy Sick Tuesday...
