If It's Not One Thing, It's Two...

Poor Cade has been having a tough time of it lately. He celebrated his birthday in December, then had to go for his one year checkup. The one year checkup means five--count them--five shots! Five injections at one time! That's ridiculous, I can't believe that pediatricians do that.

Next Cade fell down while toddling around, and hit his face. He got a small, dark bruise on his little cheek. It's been there for over two weeks, and still hasn't completely gone away.

Then Cade started out the New Year with a cold and an ear infection. Actually I think he had one in December that never completely went away... He just doesn't seem to be able to catch a break lately. It's been a rough month for him. Poor baby!

Cade's mama took him to the doctor when he began running fever, and he got a shot, as well as antibiotics by mouth. The shot was painful, and the antibiotics gave him diarreah plus a terrible diaper rash. His little behind looked awful, and judging from the way he carried on during diaper changes--if felt awful.

Cade finished taking his antibiotics and his little behind got well. Now he has something going on with his "male parts". They're all red and swollen. I don't know what's up with that, but I guess it's back to the doctor again.

The phone rang early this morning...then it rang again...and again. When I finally answered it, I heard a faint voice on the other end of the line. It was Cade's daddy, my oldest son. He sounded like he was dying. It seems that in addition to Cade's problems, the family has been attacked by the stomach virus! It had not been a restful night for anyone at Cade's house. If it's not one thing, it's two...I hope everyone will soon be feeling better!
