Twenty Bucks That I Can't Get Back
Well, we had an appointment at the Pediatrician's office this morning.
That's 20 bucks I'll never see again.
Our appointment was....about 7 minutes in total. That includes sign in, confirming address & insurance, looking at the fish in the waiting room, getting weighed in, vital checking & the all clear from the Nurse Practitioner.
Apparently, his ears look great.
Nurse Practitioner: "It doesn't look like anything is wrong."
Me: "Really? Because at 10 o'clock last night, it seemed like EVERYTHING was wrong!"
Verdict: puking was probably NOT related to the ear pain. Puking was probably an isolated incident relating to playing hard after eating... The ears look great. He has no cough/cold/congestion/runny nose symptoms. She says that this could be some nasal drainage aggravating his ear, but he didn't really show any symptoms of that. It could be the very, very, very early signs of an ear infection coming on. Tylenol for the pain if he has any over the next few days. And, if he is complaining of pain throughout Fri/Sat/Sun, then take him back in on Monday for an ear re-check.
So, we paid & were on our way.
Is he crabby? Hell to the yeah. Does he still say that his ear hurts? Sometimes yes, and sometimes no. Is he crabby from not getting a good night of sleep? Probably. Let me say---we both are tired! He's down for a nap now, and I'm probably going to lay down for a while myself.
