Ear infections and a bunch of sick kids

Hi all!

Today I had to take Maria, and Rorie to the doctor because they both have ear infections (and I have one too :() Rogie and Mark have really bad colds, and Chris has strep throat. Lilly is still healthy (Knock on wood) But the rest of us are sick. Does any one know how to get the pain of an ear infection to go away? The doctor put us all on amoxicilan, as well as some ear drops but Maria is complaining it still hurts and this is torture for her mommy to watch. Rorie says hers still hurts to. So does mine but I am old enough now to suck it up and ignor it but they aren't. Any advice? I just hate it when we all get sick. Last year we all got the chicken pox. Everyone of us my hubby and my kids and me. My mom and his mom came and stayed with us and took care of us but still. When one gets sick the rest of us do to. I hate this time of year. We always get sick. Sickness should die! lol I am off for now to take care of all of them!

Everyone is feeling better now.we are all heading back to the doctors wendesday morning. (that'll be just loads of fun!!)This after noon I am taking Rorie, Rogie, Chris, Maria, and Lilly to a close friends (Judi) house for a little visit. She has two children that are much older than mine (16 and 20) but they often entertain my kids so Judi and I can talk for a while. It will be nice. She is making sure her kids are home today. I am looking forward to some adult conversation! Well I better get goin since it takes about 30 mins for me to get everyone in the car and happy by my self!
