Well, the pedi thinks Chloe has an ear infection. I say "thinks" because he couldn't visualize her ear drum very well, but he said it all looked consistent with an ear infection. So she started antibiotics this evening. She was pretty good at the doc, smiling and hanging out, crying with vigor during the exam, then smiling when we left, but then she fell asleep in the car and it's all been down hill since then. She was running a fever again this afternoon and has been either crying or sleeping. I haven't seen her this sick in a long time. But she's breathing comfortably and tolerating some feeds, so I think she's just feeling lousy. The next 48 will tell us a lot (whether the antibiotics work or not). I'm hoping all the sleeping is just her sleeping it off. She'll get some extra snuggles from mommy tonight, that's for sure!
