Late Night Ear Ache

Two nights ago MDF woke up in the middle of the night crying. At first she just went with me to get water, but when she got back in bed, she pulled her sheet over her ear. I asked if it hurt, and she started crying and said yes. We tried to get medicine, but she started coughing and got so worked up that she threw it up. After that she just wanted to go to bed. CDF lay with her for a while and eventually she went to sleep around 1:00.

Then yesterday CDF took her to the Doctor and they confirmed that she had an ear infection and gave her antibiotics. Interestingly they said she probably couldn’t hear out of that ear (I think it’s the right one), and we had started noticing on Saturday that she was saying “what” a lot. But I don’t know if it really related or not.
