She's A Tough Cookie

My little girl is one tough cookie. We're all sick right now. Those colds have moved on to a sore throat for Alan, a sinus and ear infection for me and bilateral ear infections and a cold for Alaina. If it weren't for the snotty nose you just about wouldn't know she is sick. She is such a trooper! I knew she was a little whinier than usual but now that she is getting tylenol around the clock even that has cleared up. The doctor was quite surprised to see how great she was doing with both ears so yucky. I thank God that he has blessed me with such a tough little one and I thank Him that He has blessed Alaina with such a cheerful disposition even in the midst of illness. Thank you Lord!

You probably already know this, but I must say it, so please forgive me. Always watch those ears. Ear infections come so quickly on little ones and can cause a lot of damage. My ear drums burst when I was little and the scarring from that doesn't go away and had left me with diminished hearing.

I hope you all feel better soon and don't forget to take care of yourself, too. It will do Alaina no good if her mommy runs herself into the ground. I'm praying ya'll will have a quick and complete recovery.

You're right of course. I knew when she started slapping those ears it was more than just a cold. Luckily we already had a well baby appointment for the next day. You know it's interesting, I was so annoyed a few weeks ago when trying to make that appointment that they didn't have one for so long. The Lord knew though didn't He?

I think that Alaina has taken after her Mom. She is a pretty tough cookie too from all I have read and know about her. God bless you and your family. connie
