Where does this go?

I asked Quinn to take his temperature today.Apparently the belly button is where the thermometer goes.

Poor little guy has been very miserable and sick. He had a temperature for 4 days two weeks ago. We took him to the Doctor and it was an ear infection. We started him on antibiotics and he perked right up though we still noticed him tugging on his ear for a while after. Then Saturday he broke out in a funky rash. It looked like big mosquito bites, red and swollen and a good size. It was over his face, arms, legs and belly. Then Sunday morning he was getting little red dots too. I called his doctor wondering if it was a reaction the amoxacillin and she said to stop giving it to him. He was already on day 9 and had already had his dose for the morning. By the afternoon the rash was already fading but we decided not give him anymore medicine. We had a doctor's appointment to check on things today and by the time we got there he had a fever and was shaking. He was so sad :-( He still had the infection in one ear so now he is on a different antibiotic. We aren't sure if the amoxacillin caused the rash since the it started to fade before we got a chance to stop giving it to him and the doctor said the rash sounded more viral than an allergic reaction. He is such a trooper! So sweet even when he isn't feeling great. Hope you get better soon buddy!
