That Hurts my Ears!

Last week, Angel kept waking up at night.  Her balance was crazy.  She wanted to be held all the time.  Thank heavens Seraph's physical therapist recognized the symptoms as a possible ear infection.  Doh!  Poor girl. She's on antibiotics now and is starting to feel better.

Today I took Seraph in to the doctor, too. (Her post-hospital follow-up visit.) Seraph has an ear infection, too!  OK, so how did I not see this? I thought she was just cranky from the two immunization shots (flu and pneumonia) they gave her last week.  I feel just awful.

It's harder to recognize ear infections because I've never had one.  They must hurt, though, because my girls get sooooo grumpy when they get one.

I've been so careful with Seraph this week.  I don't think I could've done anything more to prevent her from getting the ear infection.  It doesn't help me feel better, but it seems like it should.

Don't feel bad sweety. When Alex got a double ear infection as a baby, I never knew. He was a little grumpy, but never showed any signs. To this day he never shows signs of being really sick. When it gets bad enough for me to think maybe I should take him in, he always has something horrible and the doctor says I waited to long. Ugh, it's our super cute kids that are so happy otherwise, they don't complain about the little stuff ;). You're a darn good mom and DON'T YOU FORGET IT!
