Ear Infections ‘R Us

Adrianna started getting sick last night, developing a cough which today has developed into her also having a runny nose and high fever – 104.5! She also has had diarrhea which has given her the worst diaper rash of her life. It is awful and she just shakes and cries when we change her diaper. Not feeling good at all, she just wants to cuddle with us. I love holding her, but it worries me too because it just isn’t normal for our normally active and independent little girl.

I was going to take her to the doctor tomorrow, but she was just looking so sick that we decided to run her to an After Hours urgent care facility tonight. I am glad we did. Turns out she has an ear infection. Poor Miss Banana. We gave her some medicine and she seems to be sleeping better tonight. Which means that Greg and I will have an easier and less worrisome sleep tonight as well.

I was really pleased with the After Hours place – actually called AfterOurs. You don’t have to make an appointment and it is much cheaper (and quicker) than going to the emergency room. We were the only patients I saw there and we got right in. The doctor and the staff were very caring too. I am so glad to know of a place we can go when our normal doctor’s office is closed, because it seems like the nights are the worst when you have a sick child.
