Adam and Caleb are my two oldest sons. It's cool to see that they aren't too old for skate boarding.
The other day I motivated the kids to help out with yard work by promising pizza for dinner. Let's just say, it was a productive hour. Zinnia seeds were planted, weeds were pulled, the garden was tilled, and the trees were watered. Then it was play time. The kids even went swimming in the heated pool down at the clubhouse.
Andrew has had allergies along with many of the other kids for the past two weeks. However, yesterday around noon, he came to me crying that the right side above his eye was throbbing. He said the pain was horrible-- a 10 on a pain scale. I gave him some Tylenol but the pain never went away completely. I kept alternating between Tylenol and Motrin but the pain only came down a little bit. Last night he came to me in tears a few times. After giving him more medicine, I hoped he would be better in the morning. He wasn't. I had to take Annalyn and Julia for their CAHSEE testing but I wanted to get Andrew into Urgent Care as soon as possible. I suspected a sinus infection. I was able to coordinate with John so that he could come home and take Andrew while I took the girls.
Andrew had a very rough afternoon, but he is finally sleeping next to me.
He is on antibiotics and pain/fever reducing meds.
Bless his heart.
