Ear Infection(s)

As you can see from the title of this post, we have the pleasure of entertaining more pain here at the S. home this week. Poor little Marcie. She's been sporting a very slight fever for three days, and last night she was up three times with a tight-sounding cough. One different from her usually raspy, rattling hacking sound. So off to the doctor we went.

Turns out she has an ear infection in her right ear (same as last time!). Probably has one in her left ear, as well. Hard to tell with all that wax, apparently.

She's a trooper, though. We start her on the amoxicillin tonight. She's fussy. Needy. And keeps asking us to po-po her-- which means to hold her in Cantonese. How can you deny a kid who actually asks you to pick her up and hold her in two languages?!?

Oh, poor lil bug. We have ear infections here too. So sorry. I am calling the amoxicilin "princess juice" which is making me feel oddly like Michael Jackson and his Jesus juice, so maybe I'll stop. Either way, hope she is feeling better.
