More of the plague. Poor Little Bird woke up yesterday morning with a nasty ear infection. He had been crying through the night off and on, but he would quiet down as soon as I rocked him a little bit.

When I went to get him up for the morning, he was just laying on his back, eyes glassed over, and his bottom lip trembling. It was enough to squash my heart into a pulp. His fever was 101.4, the highest it has ever been.

At first I thought it was the flu, but then I realized that the night time crying and the cough that lingered from the cold he had last week pointed more to ear infection. So we went in to see the doctor who told us that Bird had a nasty ear infection.

You know though, one dose of antibiotics and he was noticeably on the mend. By the end of today, he didn't seem sick at all. I'm grateful for healing and my healthy child. It's not something I take for granted, and sometimes it deserves to be said out loud.

I'm grateful.

I can't think of anything much worse than a mama seeing her child sick. I'm glad the meds have helped and quickly. Hugs to you both! It's time for good days for your household. ----- COMMENT: AUTHOR:Anonymous Convertible Girl DATE:Saturday, November 21, 2009 at 8:23:00 AM EST Really, thank God for pediatricians and antibiotics. My mom had lots of ear infections as a kid -- she still remembers the pain, and no antibiotics back then. Glad CC is on the mend! ----- --------
