Ear Infection

Tuesday, May 4, 2010
Luke has come under the weather just recently. What started as a cold has since moved into his ears for his first ear infection. A few nights ago Luke uncharacteristically woke up in the middle of the night. Mom being the great mom she is got up to take care of him and after a bottle and some tylenol Luke was back in dreamland. When he woke up that morning is when he faltered. Luke both looked and sounded awful. He was only awake for 20 minutes and already looked like he needed a nap. And back to bed he went; off and on for a total of seven hours.

Mom being the intuitive one knew something was off and got Luke into the doctor. The examination found a double ear infection. With one ear being particularly bad. Some antibiotics were perscribed and administered.

Luke went to bed and thankfully slept through the night. In the morning we knew he was feeling better as he was jabbering to himself in his room instead of crying. His ear to ear grin reinforced the sentiment.
