Last night our sweet boy turned into an angry little man. It was right before skating and for a time it seemed we’d have to cancel. But a time out and the prospect of skating with Papa seemed to clear up. That is until the middle of the night when he woke up screaming that he was in pain. He said his Ears hurt. Tylenol helped but only for a little while before he was up again. We managed to get him through the night and in the morning he just wasn’t himself. He spent most of the day in bed, or complaining about the pain. He also ran a fever, so it was off to the Kids Clinic at St Joes. The wait wasn’t to bad and the doctor was great with Jacob. It turns out to be a double ear infection. So Antibiotics for 7 days and he should be better. It’s been a while since we had an ear infection. This is the first time that he could express the pain. It’s hard to be a parent and have your child tell you he’s hurting and even where he is hurting but not be able to really do anything. Hopefully the drugs will clear it up fast.
