02:36 pm: well, that explains the last few nights...
Teddy has double ear infections: one very nasty and one just beginning.

Last night was baaad. No bath, but plenty of whimpering. We tried sleeping in the big chair so he could be vertical, but that didn't work out. At around 1:30, he woke up and said his ear was hurting and started smacking himself upside the head. Quite alarming. But I gave him some Tylenol and a Benadryl, and he settled back down and slept another 7 hours (he never sleeps that late).

He claimed he was all better this morning, but that was wishful thinking. He really, really didn't want to miss music class.

And I really, really didn't want to go any longer without having him seen. Of course, he felt fine when he had his doctor's appointment last week. He had fluid in his ears, but no signs of infection. So I made an appointment for him to see an ENT at the end of the month... and then this nasty infection showed up.

We're keeping the ENT appointment to make sure that the antibiotics take care of the infections.

He's not in as much pain; the doctor said it's like a pimple bursting - the pressure builds and builds, and is greatly relieved when it erupts (ruptures? not sure). The other ear is in the building stage, but I trust the antibiotics will keep it from getting worse.

I'm still foggy and a bit dizzy, but better. Peter's a little spacey, but also better. So we're all on the mend.
