Hi I'm Otis, Otis Media

Poor Keegan. It's not enough that he has a terrible cold and was bitten on Friday. Now he has an ear infection. I knew something was haywire last night when he was running a fever. He didn't sleep well and his fever was back this morning. In addition he was grumpy, grumpy, grumpy. They say that you know your child best and I knew he was fighting something new. I originally took him to the clinic today because I was afraid he had developed bronchitis. Good news on that front but then they found that pesky ear infection.
Tom is going to stay home with him tomorrow. The daycare has a policy about being symptom and fever free for twenty-four hours. Besides he is so needy and tired I think that it is best that he remains home. Should give his antibiotics time to kick in. Our pharmacy lets you pick flavors. So Keegan is all hooked up with yummy cherry flavor. Tom is under the weather too, so it will give them both a chance to rest. Talk about a rough transition into daycare.
Because I wasn't feeling guilty enough.
