I have no stats to report because Micah's 6 month appointment was cancelled since he's been sick. Last Monday he was fussy which is not like him at all, and it got progressively worse during the week. On Tuesday evening he started running a temperature. I thought that maybe he was just teething, but I couldn't see any white spots on his gums. On Wed. morning I made a doctor appointment feeling sure that they would tell me he was just catching a cold or something that would make me feel stupid. But it turned out that he had an ear infection in both ears. Okay. No wonder he was grumpy.
It took a few more days to get him feeling better though because I couldn't get him to swallow his medicine. It didn't help that it was such a large dose. On Thursday morning, after practically throwing away a third dose of his medicine, I called the doctor again in tears and asked if it came as a suppository. It didn't, but Micah could get it as a shot. I was warned that the shot was a pretty brutal one, but since I couldn't get him to swallow I took him in to get stuck. It was a brutal shot, but at least it was over in a few minutes and Micah is back to his happy-go-lucky self.
