Germs, I'm over them
Little man had his first ear infection at 13months. Was the most frightening time because the dr was from a NESB so we barely understood each other. Not to mention she was running 45minutes late and little man missed his dose of panadol so was burning hot. She sent me straight to hospital thinking it was a severe virus and we'd need to stay overnight. The dr up there looked in his ear, wrote script for anti biotics and sent us on our way. He's had the occasional cold and vomiting bug but neither miss 4 or little man were one of those kids that are always sick. He did have another ear infection 2 weeks ago but wasn't that sick. it actually took us a week to realise what it was.
Lots of handwashing is needed and a few cans of glen 20 me thinks!!
