JC never complains when he is sick or hurt. So, when he mentioned that his ear kind of hurt when he touched it, I took notice. When he mentioned it two days in a row, I figured it was serious. I took him to Urgent Care today and he has an inner and outer ear infection. The doc let me look and it was flaming red. The doc said an infection like this would make "a preacher cuss" and he would himself use vocabulary not in the dictionary! Now if only this tough guy routine would also be in place when his brother taps him....then we get the "Ouch, that hurt!" Sigh!
