Stupid Teeth Plus Stupid Weather Equals.....

An ear infection. Yay!

Drew has his first (that we know of) ear infection. He's been cranky because of his teeth. He's been drooling because of his teeth. His nose has been running because of....oh heck...who knows what. Today he was tugging at his little right ear, fussing, not napping and not eating. So I thought I'd better check in with the doctor since the weekend is almost upon us. They, of course, needed to see him. So off we go. He acts completely fine at the doctors office. Running, laughing, babbling, giggling.....just being full of his normal cuteness. When they checked his little right ear...all clear. Hmmm? Checked the left ear....yep....infected. I had to giggle because he has not touched his little left ear one time. Now he on antibiotics for 10 days, yippee. He's coughing quite a bit, but Ms. Jodi (our nurse practitioner) said his lungs were clear. I think it's just the crazy, stupid Oklahoma weather. Oh well...this too shall pass.

Hope he feels better soon. Little Sister has some of the same stuff going on, but so far the ears are clear. I can't wait for "teething" to be over!!!

try the eardoc
With the Eardoc there relay inst any problem. as it is non invasive and it treats the problem and not the symptoms

Oh, I hope he feels better soon. We've had cool nights & really warm days. C has had a runny nose, but I really think hers is either allergy or teeth. No fever or pulling at ears, so I'm keeping a watch out just in case. I think I have another year or so of teething left to go...ugh.

We'll get through it! It probably was easier in the days the docs would give little ones meds tho.
