Ear Infection

Makenna has had a fever on and off since Friday. She has been putting her finger in her right ear and messing with that ear since then also. She is such a good baby that she doesn't let you know when she feels bad. She is still playing but you can tell by looking at her eyes that she doesn't feel good. She has also lost her appetite. She normally eats very well but the last few days she hasn't eaten much at all. So today I took her to the doctor and they said she had an ear infection. She said it wasn't a terrible one and if she didn't have symptoms she wouldn't treat her. But she said her ear drum was red and a little dull and since she had symptoms she was going to go ahead and treat her. So she gave us a prescription for an antibiotic. She said it could take 48 hours to work. She didn't sleep very much last night so hopefully tonight will be better. She is very tired today and looks miserable so I hope the medicine works quickly.
