tympanic blues

Welcome to the house of very little sleep. Owen has a fever, runny nose, and goopy eyes. For the record, goopy is an official medical term I picked up from my years in ophthalmology at Mayo Clinic. Antibiotic eye drops help until Owen wails, "Hurt ear, hurt ear." After a visit to everyone's favorite pediatrician we discover we have the dreaded double ear infection on our hands. We exchange the eye drops for a pink liquid that tastes as delicious as it looks. After a few doses Owen is on the mend and sleep patterns return to normal.
