Joshua had a bit of a fever on Wednesday evening, so we gave him some Motrin and all was well when he woke up the next morning. Daycare called me on Thursday afternoon to tell me that he had a fever. Again. Poor kid.
He’s also been coughing and this morning he had snot pouring out of his nose. It’s a good thing he’s too young to be embarassed by blowing snot rockets out of his nose every time he sneezes. Come on…you know what I’m talking about. The kind of mortification that only has to happen once in your life to make you afraid to ever sneeze in public again. Yeah…that kind of snot. Fun times.
So, I got a substitute for today and took him to the pediatrician’s office.
He has an ear infection.
I’ve *never* had an ear infection in my life. Ever.
(People don’t believe me when I say this, but I swear it’s the honest-to-God truth. Strep throat…now, that’s a whole ‘nother story…yeesh!)
Dan was one ear infection away from tubes.
I hope that Joshua has decided to split the difference between our respective DNA donations and maybe he’ll just have a handful of infections in his life. Or just this one. Just this one would be great.
Oh, and we’re on tooth #5 now. It’ll be in by Sunday.
