Just after Xmas while Olivia was sticking a skewer down her cast to scratch an itch she got an itchy ear which she then started to scratch with the skewer. I suspect it was quite a satisfying scratch until somebody accidentally bumped her and she perforated her eardrum. Doctors, hospital.
10 days later when she was getting daily temps of 42 degrees I took her back to the doctors.......then the hospital. After many tests they diagnosed her with Pyelonephritis - what started as a bladder infection was now a kidney infection.
Poor kid - not the most memorable school holidays but what I love most about Liv is that nothing phases her and she just bounces right back - that smile is there even where she's feeling horrible.
