mikey had a very rough night last night. before he went to bed, he developed a raspy voice. woke up MANY times. this morning was the same thing. raspy voice and fussy. we called and got an appointment to see the pediatrician at 11. mikey has an ear infection and croup. they gave him a steroid and strict instructions to watch for wheezing. we're pushing liquids and putting up with the fussiness with a lot of sympathy. the doctor gave us these ear drops to help numb his painful ear. could be quite a few days before he's feeling better. thank heavens garrett kind of pushed us to go to the dr - i probably wouldn't have taken him in, because i'm trying to not be the panicky mom who takes him in over everything. yikes.
