Ear infection from H, E, double L

Yes, folks. You read correctly. We have our third double ear infection in 6 weeks. My poor baby. I had to take Baby K back to the doctor yesterday for the same symptoms. Vomiting, not eating, coughing, fever, fussiness...all our tell-all syptoms of a classic Baby K ear infection. My intuition was correct. Both ears are still infected. No more oral meds. We brought out the big guns. Baby K got 2 shots of antibiotics in his legs yesterday. K stayed home with him today and took him to his 24 hr. re-check. Baby K got 2 more shots today. My poor baby boy. He's a human pin cushion. Hopefully, these shots (which I will add were traumatic for K to watch) will kick this Ear infection in the bum and it'll march itself on to new living quarters. It's taken up residency way too long in my little man's ears, and overstayed it's welcome! And, Baby K's cough has been so severe that he has lyrangitis. Have you ever heard a baby cry with Lyrangitis. It's so pitiful....

Feel better soon, little man!

Okay ... are you willing to try something different? I have to tell you that Eric and I take our girls to a chiropractor and have since they were each 6 weeks old - mainly to prevent ear infections, but now for other reasons. If interested .. email me.

So sorry to hear that he has an other ear infection. Know that is hard on him and you, will be praying for you. Know the meds kick it out completely this time.

Love ya,

Poor sweet boy! Hope he feels better soon and don't worry about the pin cusion because he will soon feel much better and not even remember it :) Take care to the whole family!

Bless his heart. Do they know why he's getting them so often? I've heard of what Deidre is talking about...a chiropractor can help SO MANY THINGS. You might look into that. Praying your little man gets better very soon and that the ear infections stay away.

((hugs))
