On the 10th day of Critter’s first round of antibiotics ever, his fever returned. And, after another trip to the doctor’s office (on advice of the nurse line) it was revealed the ear infection was going strong in addition to a possible vaccine reaction and also (OMG WILL IT EVER END) very apparent teething.
As the good doctor said, he’s got a lot going on.
We are now going to observe the end of the traditional completely healthy first year by going on a 20 day antibiotics bender.
When I told my family that this was the ear infection without end, my darling brother was quick to respond with the following instruction: Make sure to post on facebook at least twice today, here, just copy and paste this: “UGHHH, another fever on the last day of antibiotics, really? Any other moms out there with advice for how to bring the fever down??”
This is only hysterical because if you know me, 100% the time my fever battle plan is to give Tylenol/Ibuprofen and call the nurse line if it seems hinky. 100% of the time this is what I tell other people to do when they leave similar status updates on Facebook. None of this should be surprising.
Someday we’ll all be healthy again.
