Zachary has been sick with a cold for weeks. Nothing major - just the runny nose/cough thing. Then late last week he started acting like he couldn't hear us. "Huh?" and "What?" all the time. We weren't too concerned (as 2-year-olds are rather famous for their selective hearing) until this weekend he started turing the volume up on his music and movies saying he couldn't hear them, was shouting constantly (even more constantly than usual), and started mishearing things frequently.
"Zachary, I think we need to take you to the doctor."
"I not hungry! I don't want a cracker!"
So we paid Dr. Zhu a visit (it's been over 2 months since we've seen her - I think thats close to our record) and the poor guy has raging ear infections in both ears. He's so tough. He never ever complained about his ear or acted like they were hurting him. So now he's on antibiotics and hopefully will be back to normal soon.
