It’s been nearly a week with Isobel’s ear infection and we’re back to square one: the last several days have been spent nursing her through a bad reaction to the antibiotics and me through some Crohn’s issues. Yesterday was the third day we spent totally cooped up, our only contact with the outside world being a trip to the doctor’s. The antibiotics made her more intensely ill than she had ever been with the ear infection, and each (frequent) diaper change felt like I was dressing a wound as opposed to changing a diaper. She’s now back to the level of sickness she was at before we took her to the doctor for antibiotics in the first place. I became a little stir crazy with all the time alone myself, so I’m looking forward to the weekend and shooting some portraits and having people over for the fight.
These photos are my favorites from my phone this week, with the execption of the artwork on the tile. While Anthony was gone we spent time in the evening on Skype. Isobel entertained herself while she knew I was occupied.
ScrewyDecimal I’m just going to say it: people should not smell like salami, especially if they are not currently eating salami.
