I took Ian to the doctor for his one month check-up last Wednesday, then Miles on Thursday because I knew he had a terrible ear infection and suspected a perforated ear drum (ouch!), and then Ari today because of ear pain. Miles did, in fact, have ear infections in both ears and a perforated ear drum, and Ari has a bad ear infection in one ear and a sinus infection. So, although it is very atypical for us, I have been to the doctor's office 3 times in less than a week.
Ari is completely miserable. He has had a nasty cold, but his ear began hurting this afternoon, and got bad...FAST! He started on an antibiotic this evening, but I feel so bad for him because he is in so much pain. He didn't go to sleep until 10:00 tonight and for the two hours previous he was writhing on the sofa in pain. I know exactly how he feels. I grew up with terrible ear infections. Roger just got home with Similasan ear drops. We've never tried these because we have been blessed with very few ear infections with the kids, but we are willing to try anything to help him. We will also keep him pain medication every three hours tonight, so it stays heavily in his body.
Please pray for healing! AND that Ian would stay healthy!
