Ear Issues take 2 (or 4?)

Noah has a double ear infection. Again. Apparently it is a bad one (or two.) But, we experienced something a little different today...

I am pretty sure Noah's right eardrum burst this evening. He woke up from a nap with dried blood everwhere, on his ear, cheek, bib, clothes. I called Dr. Shauna/ Dr. Bob to make sure I didn't need to take him to the ER. Apparently not. I think it has actually made him feel a ton better. He was so happy tonight, and that has not been the case the last 2 days. Since my initial shock/overreaction/panic, I have calmed down, done some research, and apparently this is pretty common and should heal on it's own just fine. Has this happened to any of your kids?

it has never happened to us, but i have heard that it makes them feel better. At least you won't have to worry about an ear infection in that ear for a while.

Poor Noah. He has had a rough go.
