Pitiful

I took Luke and Tyler to the doctor this evening. Luke had an ear infection. Tyler has a double ear infection and bronchitis. Poor boys. Ty had just finished an antibiotic last Monday. Hopefully they'll start feeling better in a couple of days. The doctor told me to percuss? Ty's back (that may totally be the wrong word...) 3 times a day for 3 minutes each time. It's cupping your hand and patting him on the back to loosen the junk in his chest. I tried tonight. Lasted about 20-30 seconds...how are you supposed to get a 14 month old to sit still and thump on their back for 3 minutes?

Well, if they really want you to do it, you'll have to have Andy hold him for you. It is near impossible to do it yourself unless you are doing it on a sound sleeper. Good luck! Hope they both feel better soon.
