    Hi mommycim4,

    Just checking in to see how your son is doing. Were you able to get him in to see the doctor?

    Best wishes,
    mommycim4 replied to atti_editor's response:
    Yes thankfully and turned out that he had a double ear infection just found it odd because there was no fever or anything else like when my daughter had one. He is on amoxicillin and feeling much better.
    atti_editor replied to mommycim4's response:
    I am so glad to hear that he is feeling better!
