Ear Infection with a Side of Ruptured Ear Drum

Last week Chloe woke up complaining her head hurt. The next morning she started complaining about her ear. Off to the doctor. No fever, but a very angry ear. We got some amoxicillin.

 She developed a sudden fever of 102 degrees. That same evening she yelled and then asked why her pillow was all wet. She and her pillow were covered with a clear, yellowish pink fluid. Her ear drum had ruptured. Another call to the doctor - we now had ear drops to do four times a day and orders not to get her ear wet.

It leaked for a few more days and annoyed her with its' "windy sound". Ten days later and we just got the okay from the doc that it's healed.
