Wanna See Something Pathetic?

As I mentioned briefly a few posts ago, Jack recently came down with a cold.  His cold then progressed into Croup (which is basically when their vocal cords swell around their airway), but by Friday, the croup seemed to be on it's way out.  Little did we know, a stomach bug was on it's way in, accompanied by lots of vomiting for the poor little guy. 

Now...I had never seen Jack throw up before, and wow...that's heartbreaking.  But anyway, his belly seemed to be feeling better by Monday, but then he started pulling at his ears.

So I scheduled a visit to the pediatrician, and sure enough, another double ear infection bringing the grand total for January to three infections.  Poor dude. 

But anyway...enough of the back story and on to the heartbreaking picture right?

Because of his cough...this is how Jack had to wait in the waiting room. 
Yes, that is a mask.
All I could think of was the news footage of the SARS outbreak in China when I was in high school.

Breaks a momma's heart I tell ya!

  1. Poor sweet Jack...so hard for a momma when their little one is sick...stay calm and carry on is the best advice I can give....p.s. could you imagine having Jack sick and then you had to go to work and leave him in daycare...now that would be heartbreaking ...and probably impossible

  5. sorry, but i laughed. at least they didn't make him come in the contamination door in the back of the building...(when they have an unidentified rash that is where they have to go!)

  9. Poor little guy! He looks adorable even with the face mask, though! Hope he starts feeling 100% again soon.

  10. O poor little guy! I hope he gets feeling better ... those masks are highly uncomfortable and feel strange (I had to wear one once at a doctor's appt I had for a cough last year ... yikes), he's a trooper for keeping it on for more than five seconds ... cuz that's how long I lasted before I ripped it off and started screaming, "YOU CAN'T MAKE ME!" ... okay, so not quite that bad, but I wanted to!
