Nikolai nor I slept at all last night. He was up all night with his earache and apparently wanted me up too. There's nothing worse for a mother than not being able to take away pain for her child. He slept (or rather I should say, he stayed with me) in bed last night. He is so pitiful with his ear. He finally went to sleep this morning about 5 AM, was up at 8:30 AM, I gave him his medicine and he is sleeping now, finally. He hurts so much he just makes little noises. This is not my active little boy who is very verbal and expressive. The doctor said he should feel better in 3 days. I hope so; I hate to see him in so much pain. Please say a prayer for him that he will feel better soon!
