My poor Carter-Bug

The other night Carter was walking to bed and he accidently hit his head on the door handle. OUCH! Poor little guy. He got over it though, and I thought that was it.
Wrong.
At about 1:30 in the am he woke up CRYING and saying his ear hurt. Me, thinking it was just from him hitting it on the door knob, told him to go back to sleep and it would be okay.
Wrong again.
He woke up probably every 10 to 20 min. from 1:30 to 3:30 complaining his ear hurt. My poor guy. I think I won the Mother of the Year award though, by being impatient and telling him it's just because he was tired. Finally he went to sleep and stayed asleep.
Can you guess I'm gonna say I was wrong again???
The next morning I told Bo about our night. Carter then told Bo that his ear still hurt, so Bo took out his otoscope, a big bonus to having a husband in the medical field, and checked Carter's ear. Sure enough, he had an ear infection... IN BOTH EARS!!
Aw man. My poor kid! We took him to the pediatrician that afternoon and the Dr. confirmed it. Not only that, but one of the ears, the one he was complaining about, was so bad, that the Dr. said it looked like it would pop any moment!!!!! OUCH.
I'm sorry Carter Bug.
He's on antibiotics now, and he seems to be a lot better. He's had this wierd rash lately on his face and chest too. We're hoping that it's just heat or something. That's why there are so many pictures of him. To show him being sick and to show the red cheeks.


If the camera is on, he's going to pose.

Please excuse his hair.

My goof ball.

He is really growing up. What a handsome little big guy.
When Chase was little he had an eardrum errupt on him and I felt so bad. It's so hard to know.

Hope all gets better soon.
