So, the trifecta of crying just kept getting worse. My little man hasn’t been sleeping or eating much, and just has been all around miserable. Last night when I was talking with my mom, she suggested that he may have an ear infection. Something that I did not want to believe: we’ve gone seven months sans sickness and I wanted to keep it up. Unfortunately, she was right.
I took Paolo into his pediatrician’s office this morning and we found that he indeed has an ear infection in his left ear and a sore throat. Which definitely explains his resistance to eating. Poor baby. He’s been started on an antibiotics regimen and his spirits already were lifted this evening.
Right now he’s asleep in his swing at the foot of our bed. Yes, we brought the swing into our bedroom so he could sleep in it. He is too congested to sleep comfortably on his back, so the swing is the perfect set-up for him. I hope that we can all sleep for more than three hours tonight. We are all running on fumes, especially Giuseppe. Paolo has been up every night crying, and, even though we leave the room, Giuseppe still wakes up. And then goes into work at the hospital.
So, we have hit another milestone. On Wednesday, May 19th, Paolo was diagnosed with his first (and hopefully his only) ear infection. Poor little baby.
