Heart to Heart Swap, Take 3

Well, after a short morning nap, Jack woke up in very intense pain from his ears, so off to the doctor we went. Double ear infections. On the one hand I appreciate that doctors are really trying not to overuse antibiotics and have you keep your kids at home if they "just" have a virus. But, on the other hand, I find all of the conflicting information very frustrating.

When you call on the phone about fevers (and we have phoned about that on more than occasion), you are told by the nurse not to even give them tylenol unless they are in pain and that the fever is not dangerous until it reaches 107. (!!) And yet, when the doctor sees my kid and sees his fever is at 103.1, he immediately sends the nurse for tylenol.

Anyway, Jack has had no fever since a few hours after the first dose of antibiotics and is back to his usual bouncy self today. Thank goodness.

Another round of the heart to heart swap:
Look at the heart shaped yo-yo's from Sarah ...
and the inside;
And these super sweet hearts from Melissa remind me of sugar cookies...
my pictures don't show how thick they are!;
When I opened these hearts from Rachel (who is blogless) I thought I would faint. So many wonderful 1930's patterns, it was really hard to choose which one to keep. She found a bag full of quilt pieces in the thrift, awesome eh?;
Saucy really came through with these altered playing cards, complete with glittery Eiffel towers...
and heart charms and more!

Gorgeous. All of them.

There is one final Valentine which I will get up tomorrow, and then we are on to something *really* exciting around these parts which involves buttons and a big giveaway.

Happy Valentine's Day to you!!


  1. Happy Valentine's Day!

    You need to find a new pediatrician. A fever of 107 is life-threatening and can cause brain damage. Doctors frequently advise not to treat fevers lower than 101 degrees with Tylenol, but telling a parent to ignore a fever until it reaches 107 is beyond negligent. Please do endanger your child's life by following "medical advice" dispensed by a quack.

  3. double ear infection - yikes. although, hopefully now you will both be on the mend, having a sick kid is almost worse than being sick yourself!
