Unfortunately JSL seems to be worse tonight. I sucked it up and took him to Urgent Care at 5:00. We got home at 7:00. The so called "doctor" said he had an ear infection and gave us a script for antibiotic and told me to give him motrin for the pain/discomfort.
Once home I tried to feed him. He had not nursed since 4:00 and refused to wincing in pain. I pumped thinking that it would be easier for him. Nope nothing. I went to get the medicine and left JSL with JL. When I got home he was sleeping and we woke him up for the antibiotic.
Talk about fun. . . he was not too responsive. We finally were able to get him to wake up and got the medicine ready. It was horrible. He kept gagging on the taste of the medicine and then wanted to eat, but we couldn’t get him to drink milk. We tried a medicine dropper, spoon, fast flow bottle and slow flow bottle. After a little while JL saw he was trying to root. So I tried nursing again. He ate a teeny little bit. He was so miserable. There has to be something else to this and not just his ear. I may call our doctor to head in there tomorrow if he has a bad night.
*sigh* . . . . it’s going to be a LONG night.
