Mica woke up in the morning complaining about his ear again. Daddy called the doctor's office, which is open from 10 to 12 on Saturdays. The nurse said to go in. I took him across town and the nurse at the desk said that we would have to make an appointment for later that morning.
We killed some time going to Build a Bear. The boys enjoyed it. We ate. Then were on our way back to the doctor's office.
Mica was in pain by that time. He was cuddling with me, and laid down when he got into the doctor's office. His lymph nodes are swollen, his left ear is super infected, he's whiter then usual, more emotional then usual and he's sleepy. The doctor put him on antibiotics and ear drops because his ear was so red.

Mica's been sleeping all afternoon. Poor kid! This could be part of why he was overly emotional the other night, or he could of just been tired.
A lot went wrong today. I am grateful that the boys have a doctor's office that is open Saturday mornings. I'm also grateful for Urgent Care.
