Baby Fenn and a Bacterial Infection!


I think I told you guys that Peebs had the sniffles when we were on vacation. He had a ycky cough and runny nose. Well his runny nose had subsided which I expected meant he would have an ear infection but he never has run any fever or been acting too sickly so I thought all was well.
Yesterday when he woke up one of his eyes was all puffy and pink and would leak lots of tears randomly. I thought he had something in it but I couldn't see anything. He would be playing then randomly bust out a painful cry or scream. I could not figure out what was wrong! He did not have any "crud " in his eye so I ruled out pink eye.. and then I just called the doctor who said to bring him in and I'm glad I did! He has a "bacterial infection" in his left eye and in his right ear! Poor Fellow. I tried to show his eye in the pictures above but its hard to see, I guess you may can tell it is puffy.
Anyway just thought I would share in case any of you ever notice similar symptoms in your children! Since he didn't have any fever I thought he was fine, but CB urged me to call the doctor. I hate to think I would have been letting him suffer unknowingly!
He is now taking antibiotics to clear up the infection, but he is not contagious unless another baby drinks his leaky eye fluids. ha He is his normal self, still happy most of the day and sleeping like normal so ... its the most pleasant sickness he has had yet!

Poor Baby Fenn! I'm so glad you took him to the doctor; I would probably have resisted the doctor and been super sad about it later. Hope he is back to normal soon!
