So I was really hoping that we could make it to Lennon's first birthday without ever needing antibiotics, but we didn't. Ever since we started day care he has had the tale-tell snotty nose of day care, but it just wasn't getting better and he was running a low grade fever off and on. We tried all the safe homeopathic remedies to no avail. Finally the straw broke the camel's back on Sunday night when he woke up screaming around 3am and screamed straight on through til daylight. Nothing could soothe him. So we went to see Dr Bishoff on Monday and it turns out that the little guy not only has a double ear infection, but also bronchitis. He has had 2 nebulizer treatments and 3 doses of sickeningly sweet pink amoxocillin and he seems to be on the mend. I stayed home from work again today to give him some more snuggles and peaceful naps and then its back to the grindstone tomorrow.
