Sick Babies

A couple weeks ago we had two very sick babies. Noah screamed all night one night and was diagnosed with an ear infection the next day. Within a couple days of starting the antibiotics he was doing much better.

Joel wasn’t nearly so easy. He screamed all night long and told us his throat hurt, but it was a weekend so we took him to the pediatric urgent care where they said he didn’t have strep but his throat was red from postnasal drop. Nothing to worry about, he’d feel better soon.

He kept getting worse, though, so a couple days later we took him to his pediatrician and he had very severe tonsillitis! There was no postnasal drip at all. He was so much better after just one dose of antibiotics and within a week was the happy, mischievous baby we are used to.
