Tuesday night we came home from work and daycare with a very fussy little bug. About an hour after we were home I took her temperature and she was running a fever. After a very long night of coughing and crying and tossing and turning, I took Ainsley to see the doctor. Double ear infection...again.
Ainsley and I stayed home yesterday and today. At this point she is feeling better, fever is gone, cough is better...but she is way cranky. So I know she's not feeling great.
Bad news is that this is her 5th ear infection since November. If we reach number 6, she'll have to go see an Ear, Nose and Throat specialist and from what I hear, he/she will recommend tubes. I'm really hoping it doesn't come to that, but we'll cross that bridge when we reach it. I often feel that we, children especially, are over-diagnosed and over-medicated, so I just want to be sure it's what is really needed. We'll see.
In more fun news, we took Ainsley on her first wagon ride Monday night. Thank you Grandma and Grandpa. She LOVED it. She was laughing and dancing. She had a lot of fun.
Well, gotta run, because she is being so cranky and now she's cryin because she dropped the phone.
