He’s had a high fever since yesterday afternoon, complaining “my right ear is hurting me” and that “my head hurts”. Chris took him to the kids doctor this morning and turns out the kid has an ear infection. Nothing to be done… so just some ear drops (to loosen up ear wax also stuck in the ear canal) and that’s it. I suppose it’s a good thing when your child isn’t over-medicated. He’s also obviously not contagious, so at least Carter is safe.
Hunter’s been prescribed 4 days bed rest, which is basically just to stay home (not literally in bed, no way he’ll allow that anyway!) instead of jumping around town.
So today I took Carter to the River Safari (a post on that later, after a certain someone uploads his nice photos for me to pinch!!) whilst Hunter stayed home all day to rest.
He’s in a surprisingly good mood, considering he’s not feeling well. Pretty cheery, and generally acting A-OK. Just heavy lethargy that comes and goes. And this morning, he wanted to do nothing else but “to go to mama’s bed” and lie there, snuggled up, watching movies on his iPad. Hunter has never done anything like that in his life, so it was both concerning to witness, but also super cute to see him all snuggled up.. with Jimmy the Monkey and Lightning McQueen race car!
Get well soon, my darling!
