Ear Infection....AGAIN

Well, we have been battling the same stinkin' ear infection for 2 weeks now. The Sunday before we went to the beach, I took him to the doctor, because I knew his ears were bothering him (after your child has experienced 8 ear infections, ya just kinda know). So he was placed on antibiotics (sounds familiar, huh?) for 10 days. Well, the day he got off his antibiotics, he spiked a temp up to 102 something (of course at 5pm that evening). That's where working in the ER comes in handy....my mother brought him to see me, and I had one of our docs look at him. Ears were no better.....so here we go again for another 10 day round of Augmentin. This all took place on Wednesday.

Friday night was probably the worst night Trevor has ever experienced. He screamed from the top of his lungs for an hour and a half. Tylenol...no relief, Motrin....no relief....Auralgan x 2.....no relief. By the way, we still have a fever too. By this time, we were bother hysterical. And needless to say, we got about 2-3 hours of sleep. So, back to the doctor we go Saturday morning. Still, both ears are infected, and we are on yet another antibiotic...Bactrim. The doctor also prescribed him some tylenol with codeine to take at night so he could sleep better.

So last night was much more peaceful. And I feel like a brand new person this morning...I just hope my poor Trevor does. We are supposed to follow up in 10 days to see how those ears are doing. If they aren't clear, we'll discuss tubes. I think we'll be discussing tubes REGARDLESS because I am so frustrated right now. I am OVER ear infections and my child being on antibiotics constantly! Jenny....we'll probably be seeing you soon!... :)

I hope he feels better soon. I hate he had to go through that. Brady has had several ear infections and they aren't fun. Maybe we will see you at Alabama Adventure sometime. We are leaving for the beach today but maybe when we get back.
