Ear infection...

Just call her leila-lou-sicky-poo. On Thursday Leila woke up with a terrible cough and a runny, runny nose. I took her to the pediatrician because I've heard that the croupe is going around, and I wanted to make sure Leila didn't have it! The doctor checked her out and said that she definitely doesn't have the croupe or bronchitis, but has a terrible ear infection in her right ear. : ( I felt absolutely awful, because she gave us no indication that anything was wrong with her ear (no tugging or anything!)

Her doctor prescribed amoxycillin (sp?) and rest. We picked up her medicine and a humidifier and as soon as we got home I put Leila in her pajamas and let her watch her beloved "Elmo." We hung out at home for the rest of the day on Thursday, and by Friday morning she was a different girl! Happy and playful - back to her old self! We still made her take it easy on Friday, so she could go trick or treating, and boy did she ever! (See next post!)

:-( It's so hard to tell. Carter has some sort of stomach bug (I'd go into details, but it's way TMI), but otherwise, seems perfectly fine. Happy, etc. I'm sorry Leila had an ear infection, but I'm so glad she is all better now!
