Three days ago, we left church early because Timothy was feeling ill and lethargic and complaining of pain in his ear. By the end of the day, we was crying in pain. Ibuprofen and Tylenol were keeping him from being completely miserable all the time, but each time the meds wore off, he would begin to cry again.
On Monday morning, Lori took him to the doctor to find out that he had a sever inner ear infection. Fortunately, even though it was bad, it had not perforated the ear drum.
He’s now on antibiotics and doing much, much better. He was back at school today (Tuesday). I can’t think of anything more upsetting then knowing your child is in pain and you can’t just make it stop.
