EUREKA! At last we have stumbled upon the answer to Nik’s current nocturnal pain.
Oddly enough, it’s the same thing that caused him pain a mere eight days ago: an ear infection. As it turns out, the anitbiotic didn’t knock out the infection and it came back. With a vengeance.
Today, Nik spiked a fever of 102 F and lost his appetite entirely (!!!). Truly, I’ve never seen a child who wanted to eat more than Nik does. But today, all he could muster was a token bite or two before he simply started licking the flavor off of things and putting them back on the plate (or the floor of my car). Such a sad little boy.
We’ve started another round of antibiotics and now added drops to both ears.
Hope you all have a joyful and safe holiday weekend!
