I've always felt horrible when I take one of the kids to the doctor for a check-up and then I'm told that they have an ear infection. If they don't have a fever and don't complain, then how am I supposed to know, right?
Well, poor Evan started running a fever on Saturday evening. And then he had it again Sunday evening. And Monday evening. And Tuesday evening.
I asked him if he had a sore throat. He said no. I asked him if his ears hurt. He said, "Yes. This one." and he pointed to his right ear and did again this morning when I asked him after breakfast.
So I packed the boys up and headed to the pediatrician's office just certain that he had an ear infection.
His ears looked fine.
The poor boy is cutting his top, right molar and that was causing his ear to hurt.
You'd think by child #3 I'd be on top of this kind of thing.
Nope. I feel as clueless as a first time mom.
