More than a little worried

Aidan has all of a sudden seemed to have tuned us out. “Selective Hearing” would be a trait requiring more maturity, right? (For those that don’t know, he’s almost 2 1/2 and has been battling a bad ear infection. We tried no antibiotics, a course of amoxicillin, and a shot of rocephin (sp?). I don’t think he’s recovered.)

All morning I’ve been offering his favorite things, but without getting his attention first. Not once has he responded to “ice cream, candy, or popcorn.” Hell, he knows how to spell popcorn and will normally go into a frenzy at the mere mention. This morning, we haven’t even had a twitch.

If Tim asks him what Mama just said he answers, “No more monkeys jumping on the bed.”

I’m just sick to my stomach right now. :-\

If we get his attention and have him look right at us, he will respond to a normal speaking tone, but if something is said near him he doesn’t react at all. This is unlike our little myna bird.

I hope I’m just being paranoid, but it seems I’ve had to raise my voice a lot more, lately. Now, it’s dawning on me that maybe he didn’t hear me the first time. :-
