A message from Silas: Ear Infection, I challenge you to a dual on the front lawn at dawn. You don't stand a chance against me as I am armed with an array of western medicine plus the love of my mama and daddy and the occasional lukewarm affections of my cat. Ha Ha Ha Ha!
Okay, all laughing aside, we just got back from the doctor's office and it's official. Silas has his first ear infection (both ears). The Doc says it has just begun within the last 24 hours. This explains why he was tossing and turning, complaining and unable to sleep for over 2 hours last night, and why he spent the entire morning crying. After several phone calls from Drew In which I could here Si screaming in the background (for those of you new to Planet Silas, Drew is a stay-at-home dad and I am a work-way-too-far-away-from-home mom), Drew and Patrick took Silas to the doctor and I rushed to meet them there. Good thing too as we got our diagnosis and can treat him for it. He's been given something for the pain (he fell asleep as soon as it kicked in) and Drew is picking up antibiotics to give Silas a big advantage in that dual with our enemy, the Ear Infection. It's been a rough few days for him, but we're confident he shall prevail!
