Funny Faces and Sick Boys

It has not been a good week or two around here as far as sickness is concerned. 1 1/2 weeks ago I brought Brandon and Wesley to the pediatrician since Wesley's rash hadn't cleared up. The doctor thought it was on a staph infection and put him on a sulfa antibiotic. We had to stop it on Sunday because it really tore up his stomach. He probably pooped around 20 times in two days. Looking back on it though I now wonder if he had a stomach bug or rotavirus and it was just coincidental that he was on the medicine. I wound up bringing him to a dermatologist on Thursday and he has a yeast infection which is what the rash has been all along. He is on a hydrocortisone prescription which is finally clearing it up. The same day that I brought Wesley to the pediatrician I also brought Brandon since he had been coughing all week. The doctor said he had bronchitis and put him on the z pac. Monday night Brandon complained about his stomach hurting a few hours before he went to sleep. He went to sleep as usual and woke up an hour later throwing up. He continued for the next 2 hours. He stayed home from school on Tuesday and by dinner seemed a lot better so he went back to school on Wednesday. On Thursday afternoon his school called to say he needed to be picked up. He now was having the issue with his other end. It continued for 2 1/2 days. I finally brought him to the doctor yesterday and the doctor thinks he had rotavirus. He told me he could have immodium which they don't like to give to kids until it has been 3 days at least and it finally seems to have worked. I also brought Wesley yesterday because he has an awful cough which started Thursday night and now he has bronchitis. He is now on the z pac. So hopefully everyone is on the mend.

The first 3 pictures are of the boys funny faces. Wesley has recently discovered Yo Gabba Gabba and on one of the episodes the kids make funny faces so Wesley copies them when they do. The last 2 pictures are what Wesley does when you ask him to smile now.

Ugh! Poor little guys! What does it mean when Brandon was having an issue with "his other end"? I hope both he and Wesley feel better soon.
