yeah, remember when i said it was almost comical?

i was kidding.

not funny. not funny at all.

i'd like to introduce you to someone...Mrs. Not So Sunshiney At This Point.

goo has had a rough "recovery" since monday. hence, the reason i haven't posted since then. we thought things were going to be ok. but she was up most of the night monday night. hmmm...interesting. the only time goo ever has trouble sleeping is when she has an ear infection. but they fixed that on monday. right?

tuesday -- cranky. tuesday night -- no sleep.

wednesday -- cranky. wednesday night -- no sleep.

wednesday afternoon, mama calls ear doc. nurse calls back and isn't very sympathetic (or nice, for that matter). says there is no way any of goo's "issues" are ear-related. ummm...lovin' that she's using the word "issues." lovin' that.

breathe in. breathe out.

thursday morning. mama is very frustrated at this point. and honestly, goo is too. (or at least that's what we think and can only assume.)

mama takes matters in her own hands and call God himself (aka dr. g).

"bring her in."

off the three of us go this morning. in our jammies.

hang out with dr. g. small talk. looks in her right ear.


goo has a freaking ear infection. in her perfect new tubed ears.

i'd like to think that i am a pretty positive person. always see the good in others. little miss sunshine.

i'm ashamed to admit the tone of my message to the ear doc's nurse this morning.

Dear God, please forgive my motives. forgive all the mean thoughts i had about ear doc's nurse. and please forgive the unkind words i used in my head this morning. thank you for allowing me to not let those words actually come out of my mouth into the ears of my childrens' virgin ears.

oh, and the sentence that actually came out of my mouth this afternoon?

"ummm, big h? today is NOT the day to disobey mama. trust me." word from ear doc's nurse. we'll see how that goes.

but just another round of antibiotics for my goo. and hopefully a trip to the ENT today.

(do you see my white flag waving? is this the most pitiful post yet?)

Wow - so sorry! So probably an internal and external infection? Is their junk pouring out of her ear? You know I love the gory details! Praying for some peace in your lives!

Janelle said...

NO WAY??!!!

How in the world did that happen? Oh, girl. I feel for you. Hang in there.

OMG. I am stuck on wanting to kick the butt of the ear doc's nurse. Clearly, she doesn't stay up night after night with children. I am not such a nice example, am I? :)

that's all I can say. Hang in there!

Oh no! I'm so sorry poor little goo is still plagued by ear infections. So crazy and strange and incredibly frustrating! Hope everything clears up soon.

Alana said...

Okay, you win.

SO sorry. I can't believe that. Poor Goo. Poor you. I love that that rhymes.

I'll be praying for you.

And don't worry. If I had a nickel for every time I've said that line about today not being the day to disobey Mommy...

I could totally hear you doing the voice-over as I read this post!

I'm glad you had the guts to call the nurse out, though. Let the moms be heard! :0)

I've been "blown off" like that too, and one of those occurences ended 3-week-old Rosie up in the hospital for 3 days with the flu.

Belle said...

that is INSANE! and isn't it the worst when the nurses are so unkind...can't stand that. They should know better!

Hi, I'm here via Boomama.

And can I just say....I'm praying for you! What a long week you've had! I'm asking God to give your home REST this weekend!
