Double Ear Infection
Cooper John has been a miserable little boy for the last week and a half. We had thought it was due to the first year molars that are trying to come through. His gums have been hugely inflamed. Then he developed a cold. Finally Monday night he couldn't sleep and just cried and cried for hours. After being up more than half the night with him, I decided to take him to the doctor. Our pediatrician has morning "drop-in" hours where you don't have to call first for an appointment. We saw Dr. Smith and were diagnosed with a double ear infection. Cooper was able to start on antibiotics by 9:30 am and was already feeling better by noon. Last night we had a bit of a cough, but it was nice to have my happy, smiling boy back.
