He's smiling, but in pain. He's had a nasty nose for over a month. And now he's refusing to wear the hearing aid in his right ear.
He has another ear infection coming on.
I'm more upset about this than I would be if an ear infection was just an ear infection - but for Nolan, ear infections mean reflux. I think the fundoplication might not be working.
I'm more frustrated than I can possibly express - I don't see fluid leaking out of his ears yet, so I'm watching and waiting. We'll probably be at the pediatrician's office tomorrow, and since Whooping Cough is going around in our area, this doesn't make me happy.
I suppose we'll see what the ear looks like tomorrow.
