Everyone in my house has been sharing colds back and forth over the last few weeks. Aside from being all snotty and gross, Chloe woke up this morning a little extra whiny. When I asked her what the matter was, she replied with the following:
"My ear hurt. Someone poke it with a stick."
She hadn't been out of my line of sight so far that morning, plus she was clingier than usual, so I figured it was probably a genuine problem.
Fortunately the doctor was able to fit us in early and Chloe was right. Her ear did hurt. Both of her ears are infected. We got her medicine from the pharmacy and have spent the day at home snuggling on the couch.
Hopefully she'll feel better soon!
