08:21 am: no midnight bath - w00t
Lots of other midnight activity - medicines, tissues, drinks of water - but no bath. The antibiotics seem to be kicking in already.

Halle-freakin'-lujah.

Teddy now wants me to clean his ears all the time with hydrogen peroxide. I'd never done that before, but the doctor recommended it to get the crusty bits out (outside only, of course).

He's said his ears feel clogged, so presumably he's hoping to alleviate that feeling. But the hydrogen peroxide is cold; he always says he's freezing after I do it - happy shivers? Dunno.

He hates the amoxicillin. Cries the whole time he's taking it. But y'know? He does take it. Every single drop. The last time he had antibiotics (more than 2 years ago), we had to mix it in his applesauce (and had to get the prescription refilled because so much was spilled or wasted trying to get it into him). This time, he understands that it will make him feel better.

My little boy is growing up. I'd :sniff:, but this is the good part of growing up. And when he's sick, I get to see the good and bad parts of the little baby. He's clingy and weepy, but he's also sweet and affectionate and wants to spend all his time with me. That's mighty nice.

Clingy and weepy

It is sweet -- but I want to go on record that clingy and weepy is only sweet the first 18 or 20 years! YoMaMa (Glad he's getting better)

In the meantime, I'm just gonna enjoy the hugs. :)
