Sick Day

So last night Nora woke up around 12AM complaining that her ear was hurting. I gave her some Tylenol and she went back to bed. I knew she had been going in and out of a cold for a couple of weeks and her eyes were starting there usual oozing thing. Whenever Nora gets a cold it heads straight for her eyes. They water and ooze white stuff and the even swell a bit. So I decided that we were not going to school in the morning but we were going to the doctor. Nora has never complained of her ear hurting so I knew she was serious.

So this morning of course she was acting fine, like nothing was hurting her but she is usually like that when she is sick. She has never been real cuddly when she is sick, she just tries to keep on going. I made an appointment at a new Pediatrics this morning. We had never been there before but I wanted to try a place closer to home. From the minute we walked through the door we loved it! It was bright and fun inside for the kids and the staff was so nice. They played with Nora and talked to her so friendly. Nora didn't really want to leave when we did. The doctor said that she does have a ear infection behind the ear drum and she is not contagious. She gave us a prescription for an antibiotic and sent us on our way. So even though Nora looks pitiful you would never know it by the way she is acting. We will be back at school tomorrow. Sick days can be nice sometimes.
