First Ear Infection and Sore Throat

It has finally happened. Marisa got her first ear infection and sore throat. For several days Marisa had been extremely clingy and whiny, but I just ignored it because I thought she was just being difficult due to her cold. But a couple of days ago I couldn't take it anymore. She was acting so miserable and just hard to handle and so I made an appointment to go to the doctor's office. It wasn't until I was dialing the number that it finally clicked in my head that she could have an ear infection.
And well, according to the nurse it was a pretty bad ear infection. And apparently Marisa has a high pain tolerance because when the nurse asked me if she woke up often at night and I replied "not really only once", she was really shocked. She then told me pain tolerance was genetic and let me tell ya, it is not from me, that's for sure! I feel bad that I didn't bring her in sooner but instead just let her suffer for several days. But I never experienced an ear infection with my child before. I guess that is what happens when you are the oldest, guinea pig child. Sorry Marisa, I love you! I'm glad you are feeling better!

My sick baby fell asleep on the couch while watching her favorite tv show, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse.
