Since both boys had the same symptoms, I made an appointment for the both of them.  Thankfully they were able to get them in at the same time.  And around that time was when the cable guy came to fix our On-Demand and stuff but that's beside the point.

Our appointment was at 2:30PM but the pedi didn't actually get into our room until like 3PM.  And Noah was screaming & crying the whole time.  It was BAD.  Our usual nurse stayed in there with us until the pedi got in there.  She took one look at Noah and KNEW that something was wrong with him.  She looked at Caleb first but said that his ears, nose & throat looked just fine and then moved on to Noah.  She looked in his ears and said that he had a bad right ear infection.  This is his first ear infection ever so he's having a rough time with it.  I feel so bad for him. 

She said it's not contagious and she thinks that Caleb contracted a virus from somewhere & then gave it to Noah.  It then turned into an ear infection in Noah and there's a 10% chance that Caleb will get an infection from the same virus.  There's nothing that she can give Caleb, we just have to let it run it's course.  I just have to keep putting saline drops in his nose to try to break up his congestion.

Noah has to take 2tsp twice a day of Amoxicillin.  [I used to LOVE taking that stuff lol]  He has to do that for 10 days.  She said that his fever should be gone within 72 hours and if it's not then they need to see him again.  His temp was 102.6 & that was WITH Tylenol. I can only imagine what it would be without it.  So I went to Walmart and got the meds and just got home.  We ate at Walmart while we waited for his medication to get filled. 

So now I'm home and Noah's watching Blue's Clues & Caleb is in the swing.  I so need a break!
