What is up with this kid?

Ok...so, I'm coming to the blog in hopes that one of my really smart Momma friends will figure this out.

What is wrong with Peanut?

She looks fine...right? Well, that's what I thought too. Yesterday I realized her ear was a little red...I thought nothing of it (awesome Momma, I know!). Anyways, later my Mom pointed out "her ear is really red" at which point I looked and was freaked out that it was turning brown.

Yes, brown.

I opted not to do anything right away and see if it went away...but this morning when I woke up it looked worse.

I'm not sure if you can see it...but, its red but the inner part is like a yellowish brownish. I can tell you its a little crusty feeling...its not wax...it can't be washed off...and we've gone to the ER...and you know what they said..."We have no idea what this is..." but, they did treat us for an ear infection that I didn't know she had...and while we were there she also started having diarrhea and on the way home vomitting...so now that doctor said its an Ear Infection AND Norovirus...:-P

But, what's up with the ear?

No one knows what it is...not the doctors, not the nurses...not us...do you?

As you can see in that picture above, we've marked it with marker because the brown spot had gotten bigger over night...so, we just wait...and if it gets worse back to the ER we go.

Did she get a bug bite? It looks similar to the very bad allergic reaction Yoda has to insect bites. They crust over several times.

I don't think she got bit by a bug but its possible. The doctors listed it as a spider bite but told us they didn't think that was what it was...they also gave us fungus cream and told us they didn't think that would help. She's on an antibiotic for the ear infection so hopefully that MIGHT help if its some sort of infection...they just really had no clue. Unfortunately, she was doing really well earlier and then started getting worse...went from no fever to 101.8. We're doing motrin and watching it at the moment...I really really don't want to go back to the ER tonight/this weekend/month/year LOL.
