K.C. sick again :(

Sick again. Last night I heard K.C. shivering in his sleep so I covered him with another blanket thinking he must have been freezing. I didn't check if he had a fever because he went to sleep well (or it seemed he was well.)
This morning I noticed his ear super red and felt him and he was very hot. I took his temperature and it was 103. Peeled the blankets off and took his p.j.'s off and headed to the tub for a cool bath.
He was miserable. I phoned the doctor and was able to get a 9:30 appointment. I am always amazed at some of the nurses in the office. There are two new nurses. The nurse who weighed K.C. (who tried to) seemed to get annoyed when K.C. couldn't understand, "get on the scale, now be still." I told her he didn't understand and that he was miserable and weighed about 62 pounds. We walked to the small room and the nurse took his temperature, it was still high and asked him to open his mouth but he didn't understand. The doctor came in and did a rapid strep and it was positive and to top it off he has a ear infection. His ear was so red on the outside. Poor little guy, what a tough time. It's so hard when they are sick and can't tell us what hurts.
