Just when we begin to think #4 is back to normal-ish...she comes downstairs and says "Mom, did you know that one of my ears is bigger than the other?"
"Most people have one bigger ear."
"Bigger like this?"
My first thought was "bug bite" but I can't find one. (Okay, that's a lie. My first thought was "Oh crap! What's wrong with her now?" then I calmed down and thought "bug bite")
Our whole JRA adventure started with a nasty swollen ear and bad infection. (Malignant Otitis Externa. We think. There's no way to be 100% that this is what started it all. That's my "I'm not a doctor" disclaimer.)
What's wrong now? He brother has been running a fever for days. Is this a viral infection looking for a place to happen? Is there a bug bite I missed? Can a kid get arthritis in her ear? Is Batman going to be able to save Gotham from the Riddler?
Stay tuned. Same Bat time, same Bat channel.
*****Update: it was bug bites. Chiggers. It turns out that with her wonky immune system, she just reacts more ferociously to everything.....including bugs.
I hate being Paranoia Mom.
