The Nurse who checked Felix at the hospital was lovely with him. His temperature was over 39 degrees so we stripped him down to try and make him a bit more comfortable (it was hot in the hospital anyway). She checked his throat which was a bit red. I asked if she had ever checked the ears of a child with Down Syndrome and she said 'No' so I told her about his narrow canals and how Felix's Doctor recommended pulling down his earlobe a little bit and shining the light in a slightly different direction than you usually would. She did that and was able to see a tiny bit of his left eardrum (better than most other Doctors we've encountered) which was a bit red. She wasn't able to see the other eardrum at all. While we waited for the Doctor to see Felix, he fell asleep.

and a pouring nose, here's the smile
Thankfully, at around dinner time tonight, Felix picked up quite a bit. He ate a little bit and had something to drink (about 5 mouthfuls of liquid; nowhere near as much as I would like). We even got a couple of big, cheeky grins. We tucked him into bed tonight with the vaporiser pumping and with Eucky Bear Rub smeared all over the front of his pajamas. Hopefully the antibiotics will work on whatever infection he has that is preventing him from getting better. He's always so tolerant of pain and discomfort when he's sick so there's obviously something that is making him feel really unwell, poor little guy :(
