I am very overwhelmed and stressed right now.
Finn is having a allergic reaction to the Amoxicillin he has been taking for his ear infection. He has little red bumps ALL over his face. It looks horrible. I feel so sorry for him. I don't think it is bothering him as much as it is me, but it just frustrates me so bad. I took him to the doctor yesterday and he pretty much blew it off. He never said if that's what he thought it was or not. He will NEVER take Amoxicillin again that's for sure.
I feel like we live in the doctor's office. I told Jared on the way over that he should go back to school to be a Pediatrician instead of getting his Master's. He could definitely do it, but he won't. Darn..
I know it's not life threatening but I think it frustrates me because I'm not 100% sure if it's from the Amoxicillin. I am pretty sure that it is, but it could be something totally different. It could be food, his new sheets (I did wash them), or anything else that he has been in contact with. I just don't know..and I want to know so I can stop doing whatever is causing it. Ughh...
Then the doctor I saw said I could give him Benadryl if I wanted to and told me to give him a teaspoon. We'll I figured out later that a teaspoon was way to much for his size. Seriously? What if I would have given that to him? Luckily I went with my own instincts and used only 1/4 of a teaspoon.
I have a really busy week and things keep coming up to add to it. Anytime away from my family stresses me out to. I don't like to be away from them very much, as you already know about me! I have 3 Thirty-One parties this week and a lot of other things that I have to do.
Tomorrow morning I am taking Finn to a gymnastics class with Harper! I think he will have so much fun, if he is ok to take. I will just have to see how he is doing tomorrow morning.
I know everyone goes through times when life seems to overwhelm us. I have so many things on my mind right now. It seems like all I do is make decisions all the time, and make choices for my family. I think that during the overwhelming times in our life it could also be a time when God wants to teach us something more about ourselves and his love for us. He has a reason for everything. It makes us stronger! I have to constantly remind myself that during these uncertainties that everyday brings, we have the assurance that God knows what we are facing.
The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and I am helped. Psalm 28:7
