If I had known, I certainly would not have travelled over snoqualmie pass with a congested newborn. But I didn’t know, though if course I am beating myself up about it. Apparently any major elevation change in a baby with congestion is guaranteed ear infection, so one day into our trip to see my parents, Boof and I were up early with Potamus in the medicenter getting his poor ear checked out. We caught it early, and he is on my favorite medicine ever (bubble gum flavored amoxicillian), but I can’t help but thinking this is all MY fault. I pushed him too far because for once I wanted to visit my parents and I sacrificed my poor sweet boy’s health.
Both my mom and my mother-in-law assured me that Potamus will forgive me for this, but I wonder…will I forgive myself?
