So the fluid in her left ear at last Thursday’s appointment DID turn into a nasty ear infection. Just like I thought it would. What I didn’t expect was for it to be completely resistant to the antibiotic that she was on that was supposed to prevent it from happening. It’s a good thing I didn’t give it to her this morning. Instead she took a dose of the new antibiotic, got some motrin, ate two fries and most of a apple fig bar and now she is taking another nap.
There we have it. Ear infection…again. I have a follow up appointment set with her pediatrician later this month. Morella has gotten an ear infection every single time she has had a cold. She had mentioned the possiblity of a referral to ENT to discuss tubes. I guess we’ll see what happens. Tubes are better than over exposure to antibotics right?
