Is this the end?

I'm really starting to worry. My little guy has been on a nursing strike! He has an ear infection but has been on an antibiotic since Friday. His fever broke yesterday and I thought he was feeling better. He was refusing to eat or drink much on Saturday and part of Sunday. He was drinking some water from a sippy cup and eventually took 2 bottles of expressed milk. Last night he woke up every 3 hours and I was able to get him latched. But, when he is awake he wants nothing to do with the breast! In fact, when the nipple gets close to his face, he gags like he is going to throw up. I am a teacher and generally express about 10 ounces while I'm away. Today I only expressed 6 ounces and he did not nurse at all! Is this the end? Please help, I'm not ready to be done and I hope he isn't either!
