And you, you take me the way I am

So, I am officially on a sick/snow day off from work.  It's snowing balls outside, too.  But that's not why I called off.  Ry called off, too, actually.  It's because we had a wonderful trip to Akron Children's ER last night around 3 am in horrible road and weather conditions.  It was super awesome.  Basically Bear wakes up screaming at 12:00 am.  And screaming, nothing we could do would calm him down so at 2:30 I called the nurse hotline and they told us to take him to the ER, but one where there was a pediatrician.  So, we drive all the way out to Akron Childrens in this horrible weather and horrible roads and of course Asher calmed down and was cool in the car. We get to the ER and man, our attending physician was a weirdo.  Our resident was pretty awesome but our attending?  I guess that's what you get on third shift perhaps?  After making bear cry a bunch and then eventually causing him to bite a blood blister into his lip the determination was that bear is completely fine.  

So crazy attending dr comes in and tells us that if we have been giving bear benedryl that that combined with his cold is giving him night terrors.  Some how I don't believe this.  Especially since I did not give him benedryl last night, he had it the night before.  I don't know what happened last night it sucked.  We tried everything, rocking him, rubbing his back, bringing him into our bed, sitting up with him, laying down with him, tried giving him medicine he wouldn't take, tried giving him juice that he was crying for but wouldn't drink it.  It was horrible.  

Sorry this post is all over the place.  I'm having a hard time concentrating, we got home at 5:30 and then asher woke up at 9.  So, operating on fumes.  Yeah...gah.  Um, i don't know if that covers it or not. I'm sorry.  I'll try again later probably.
