Turns out Big E has croup. A mild case. Nothing wrong with his ears or throat. The doctor isn't concerned, but prescribed a steroid if it worsens.
Baby E's nose was a bit crusty so I asked the doctor to check his ears real quick just to make sure he was doing fine. He looked in one ear and said it looked slightly infected. Then he checked the other and said it looked pretty bad. So there... Double ear infection for the baby. Awesome.
Now that little stinker has given me absolutely no indication of being sick besides that little bit of gunk in his eye last Monday and his crusty nose today. He always pulls on his ears when he is tired, but I didn't notice any additional ear tugging. No fussing when I lay him down. Definitely no problems eating. No coughing or hoarse voice. The doctor wrote a prescription to fill in the morning, telling me to just give him pain killers tonight, but I didn't even have to do that because I set him in his crib and he went right to sleep! Crazy little baby!
Here's hoping we are getting this all out of the way now!
