My Sick Little Guy

It's been a very long week around here.
Wyatt came down with what we thought was a cold last Wednesday evening and it progressively got worse through the rest of the week. By Sunday afternoon he was running a fever of 103.5 and had a nasty cough but I didn't take him into the doctor until Tuesday when he woke up again with another high fever for the 3rd day in a row.
The doctor diagnosed Wyatt with Para-influenza, Bronchitis, and a Double ear infection. He was given 2 shots to help with the ear infections and was put on 4 different antibiotics. We went back into the doctor today, Wednesday, and he was put on breathing treatments to clear up the bronchitis in his lungs. On Friday we have to go back onto the doctor to make sure he has made progress and that his ears are starting to clear up, if they are not looking better he will get 2 more shots and they will reevaluate the antibiotics he is on.
So, that is what I have been doing for the last week... taking care of my sick little guy! Tonight is the first night he has not had any fever and actually seemed like he was feeling a little better! Hopefully by the end of the week he will be back to normal Wyatt and we can finally get back to normal life, aka, not having the TV on 24/7.
