Peanut woke up with half a face swollen this morning and started crying. The gland on his left side, right below the ear, was inflamed. We were at the pediatric clinic an hour later as their first walk-in visitors of the day. Half an hour later we walked out with a diagnosis of acute pariotitis. The doctor checked for strep throat and mono before but the test results came out negative for both. Then another hour later we walked out of a second CVS pharmacy (the first one didn’t have the medication in stock) with five bottles of 100 mL of liquid antibiotics that he has to take for the next ten days.
I am so beat today, feeling like a zombie with the lack of sleep for two nights in a row.
I am going to bed early.
