Finny and the Goop

Finn had "the croup" (or do you call it "croup"?) He had the croup two weeks ago and he has never totally recovered. He has been pretty chipper during the day but he has been up A LOT at night crying and acting generally miserable. I am talking up every 1 1/2 to 2 hours. It is starting to kill me. He cried on and off for a couple of hours last night and I watched him pound his little head on his mattress while trying to go to sleep via our video monitor. I think that all moms know what that means.

So... I took him to the doctor this morning. He was in a great mood and super flirty with his doctor. I told her the symptoms and told her that his eye had kind of started gooping a little. She took a look at his ears and diagnosed him with a double ear infection and said that the gooping in his eyes was caused by the puss in his ears (not pink eye - thankfully). Sad. The kid can't catch a break (and consequently neither can I). He woke up from his nap looking like this - much worse than when we were at the doctor's office. I thought that I would catch it on camera. He certainly doesn't seem upset about being able to see out of one eye.

Oh so sad...poor baby. Crazy the things that do and don't faze these little guys. I'll be praying Finn gets well and you all get some sleep. I'm sure Momma's ready to pound her head on the wall to get some asleep...hang in there!

Ohhh...Finn looks miserable. I'll be praying he and you get lots of sleep tonight.
