It’s my party and I’ll cry if I want to
Zander woke up with excruciation ear pain. How do I know this? Well, firstly I’m a pro at earache and secondly he never once stopped shouting and crying, pulling at his ear and saying “eina” (it hurts) over and over again.
My doctor wasn’t on call this morning so instead I had to see a clearly unqualified idiot who proclaimed that my child has no ear infection, only a sinus drip. Yeah right.
So 2 more hours of constant crying and trying to get hold of 2 others doctors that we know well, when I decided I was no longer waiting. Of to the ER we went.
As I walked in I saw a doctor that I know and trust and even though he isn’t on call for my doctor I convinced him to look at Zander. Clearly I know more than the first doctor, since Zander is going in for tubes (grommets) at 4 pm. He would have been done sooner if he didn’t have Milo earlier this morning.
This is his 3rd set of tubes in 2 years.
Tomorrow would have been his birthday party but we have decided to cancel it. No little boy will feel up to a party feeling like this 😦
