He goes to bed and everything is fine. He’s calm, unharmed and healthy.
He wakes up, I go in and WHAM!!!
Alien ear has sprung up out of nowhere.
I start thinking back to the day before. Was there anything fishy going on? Did he take a big fall that I’m forgetting? Is it a mosquito bite that I just can’t see the bite under all the redness?
Maybe it’s not as bad as it looks, maybe it will look better out in the light.
Nope, that’s still awful.
I rack my brain, I text Erin with pictures because I just can’t believe it. I keep replaying the day before in my mind…
But you know what? I still have no idea why his ear got that red and that big. It didn’t bother him at all, but it weirded me out. How could his ear just explode overnight like that with seemingly no reason? How is it possible that we don’t know what’s causing it? Surely with something this obvious we would have seen it.
I guess I just need to accept that some things are going to continue to Isaac that I’ll look at and say “where the hell did that come from?”. It will probably just get worse as he gets older.
