Elizabeth has strep throat. She's on antibiotics. Matthew has a perforated ear drum (double ear infection). He's on antibiotics too. Matthew tends to wake just before we go to bed for a late night snack and diaper change, so we decided to give both kids their final dose of the day then. It means waking Elizabeth up but that way we avoid having to figure out a noon dose at school.
They have the same kind of antibiotic, which turned out to be a good thing after someone shook the bottle with rather a lot of vim and vigour. Clearly the lid was also a bit loose! We carefully sucked up as much medicine as we could and put it aside in the fridge but luckily there was enough extra that we didn't need it.
