Sick Baby

I have all sorts of things to post about Christmas. I really do. But you will have to wait. Grace has been sick for over a week now and it's pretty much impossible to get anything done with a clingy and fussy baby. The doctor said the virus is just taking forever to work it's way through her system. Her ears are fine and she's not dehydrated. However (TMI warning!) she's had diarrhea for 6 days now and she's not taking full bottles. I am desperately trying to clean the house and get ready to celebrate Chrismas with my family, but it's a challenge!

On the plus side, Grace got so sick that her tear duct cleared out. It had been clogged since birth and I was really worried that we were going to have to get surgery to get it cleared out (here are some pictures of how bad it was.) Her eye is totally clear now and she's appreciating me not having to clean it out multiple times a day.

I hope next week my posting schedule will get back to normal. Tomorrow I will post my 2011 review!

  1. Aww I'm sorry Grace is so sick :( I hope she gets better really soon and you guys have a nice Christmas with your family.

  2. hi Stephanie!
    I have a Grace too and I totally understand having sick kids! My kids were sick for 3 weeks on and off! It was clingy craziness around here, it was a miracle if I actually got something accomplished!

  3. I hope she feels better! My son was in that boat, along with throwing up about a month ago.

  4. Hi I'm a new follower from the New Years Blog Hop. Sorry to hear about your little one! I looked at the "clogged tear duct" picture and it sounds like this virus may have been a blessing in disguise in the way of clearing her tear duct! Hope she gets better soon!
