Tales from the petri dish

Ruby cried all night long. We haven't been able to put her down for 2 days. I finally took her in to urgent care this a.m. and the doc was like "kids get colds, besides I think it is just colic and a stuffy nose." and looked at me like I was wasting her time. On her way out of the exam room, after making me feel about an inch tall she took a moment of her precious time to check her ears. "oh." she said. "Looks like a double ear infection." Awesome. And I am the crazy one. Right. At least she got antibiotics so hopefully the sandman will be visiting us soon.

I hope she feels better soon! Score to you for knowing there was something wrong with your baby. Geez, nice bedside manner er doc.

Poor little Ruby! Can you imagine beeing a baby and feeling that much pain AND not being about to tell your parents exactly what you feel?! Sometimes doctors can be condescending. I am just sorry that doctor happens to be your pediatrician. Nice one doc :(
