Apparently we were among many parents that needed to call the clinic after the holiday weekend.
Our boys have been struggling with congestion and gunky eyes for the past few days. (Actually, it’s been on and off for a month—we’ve already had them in twice).
So today when I called, there were no appointments until Friday, urgent care doesn’t take babies under 6 M, and our boys needed to be seen within 24 hours because of their symptoms.
So the clinic nurse sent us off to the E.R.
I didn’t think I was ready for this experience. But I will say I am glad I got my feet wet with a non-emergency situation. And I am glad that the E.R. is only 3 blocks from our house!
So, after chest x-rays and an RSV test, it was confirmed (not without much waiting) that the boys have bad colds, and Cole has an ear and eye infection.
Carson (the baby I actually called about and was concerned about because his congestion is keeping him from sleeping) is just fine—he just needs to sleep inclined for a few nights. Please pray for this congestion and infections to subside soon.
Here are some cute pics from the experience…
