Did you ever hear the story about when Drew ruptured his ear drum? Gunk poured out of his ear and pooled on his shoulder while he watched TV. He never said anything. When I called the doctor in a panic, the pediatrician asked if he was screaming. He said it was one of the most painful things to endure.
Drew is a soldier.
So, it is even more heartbreaking when he is sick. It looks like he has Mono right now. He can barely talk his tonsils are so big, raw and nasty. But when I ask him if his throat hurts he croaks back, "Not really." We are all left helpless as there is really nothing to do but wait for it to pass. Hopefully soon.
