Have You Met My Molly?

Molly has had a cold and a runny nose for quite awhile. I've watched it nervously because when Macey had any type of congestion, it always went into her ears. Did I have an Emma or a Macey on my hands? I wasn't sure.

Finally after Monday night where I was up every two hours, I decided to take her to the doctor. She was not running a fever and so there was a chance I was get scolded for bringing my child in for a runny nose.

But no, she had a DOUBLE ear infection. I asked the doctor how I could tell she had an ear infection if she doesn't run a fever.

"Well," he said, "you watch for general crankiness and not being able to sleep."

Woah, doc, have you even met my Molly?

I feel your pain . . . . you can't win for losing with those dang ear infections! We'd go in to get immunizations and Halley would have one with NO symptoms at all. I guess she just decided to live with the pain . . . .

I think I may have an ear infection today

I think I hate germs. Could do without that section of "opposition in all things" of life.

Noah had double ear infections at his 12, 15, and 18 month appointments and I never had any idea. It does explain why he was such a demure child through about the age of 2, though! Then we got the tubes (we're now on our second set) and his true personality has emerged. Getting the tubes was the best thing we ever did. I wish we hadn't waited so long.
