At least there is a reason...

Little dude has another ear infection. Between the teething and the ear infection, I think we have plenty of reasons for the night waking. He is now on another round of antibiotics, and we got the official green light for ibuprofen. The ibuprofen works magic, though. Last night I actually got 3-4 hours of continuous sleep at a stretch. I am praying for similar results tonight. So far he is still down, but he has only been down for about an hour. I am probably going to finish my wine and then go to bed. Hopefully I will get a little sleep before he wakes again.

In other news, I applied for a job at an ambulatory surgery center. I was trolling the job sites at other hospitals just happened to see a part time position posted. I figure I could apply and if it is not right, I am not really out anything, as I still have my current job. We will see what happens. It would be a nice change of pace, though.

Back to work tomorrow. Hopefully I will have a sleepy baby tonight. Keeping fingers crossed...

Edit: Sigh. Woke up at 9 pm. It is probably going to be another bad night. Damn it.

Bless his heart . . . bless YOUR heart! I hope he is on the mend soon. It always seemed like as soon as we could get things smoothed out, a damn tooth would start up and then everything would go downhill from there. I would be perfectly happy if he didn't get one more tooth.

Poor little guy! Hopefully he's doing better soon so that you can both get some much needed sleep.
