I got a call the other morning from S's school that his ear had started hurting and he thought he had another ear infection. I go and pick him up and take him to the doctor and sure enough, its a bad one. Poor little guy was in a tremendous amount of pain by the time we got his medicine and got home. He took his antibiotics and pain meds and went to bed to wait for them to kick in. He fell asleep and felt much better when he woke.
