So - here is how today went.....
6 year old wakes up with an ear ache - sort of a mysterious one that has been coming and going for days. No fever - we have been watching it for days and we have a big weekend planned. She has a tendency to get sick on big weekends so we wanted a clean bill of health going into said big weekend so the decision was made to try out a Massachusetts pediatrician.
Now - two weeks ago I went and dropped off paperwork at a pediatricians office right up the street. They seemed nice enough and the office was so quiet when I went in there so it seemed like a decent fit.
I called them today and asked for an appointment.
