Feeling Better

Our girl has been sick again. Another ear infection. This is #6 for those who've lost count. Late Saturday evening she started running fever. She slept on top of me the entire night. She just felt so bad. I hate seeing her that way. We went to the after hours clinic and the doctor said her right ear was really infected bad. She was still feverish Monday so she stayed home with me. Her fever broke about mid-day and she began to feel a little better. So, she thought she'd check things out around the house. She got as far as the back door and then spent a little time there looking out the window.

I walked outside with her for a few minutes. She seemed to enjoy that. We have a referral to an ear, nose and throat doctor to discuss the possibility of getting tubes for her ears. I'm not looking forward to that. But if it will help her, we will do it. I can't stand to see her feeling so badly so often.  I guess we'll know more next week.

Hope the little sweet pea is feeling better. Ear infections are so painful.

awww, poor baby girl! Gia has been sick with a cold for a week now too, and it's so hard to see her feel sick and not be able to do anything about it. I hope Sara Madalin's ear infection clears up asap. Isn't it cute how even when they don't feel well they still have fun playing? Those pictures are just adorable. :)

Tubes are the best thing we have do so far. Jonah had his at 9 months and we went shopping right after we left the office. He never skipped a beat. (Mommy did cry when they took him though!)

What ENT did they refer you to? Scott Harrison did Jonah's and was excellent with babies. He has kids of his own so he treated him like his.

Tubes were the best thing for Preslee too. She had 5 in a 2 month period and was not sleeping well at night at all. After the tubes, she hasn't had a single ear infection and sleeps so much better at night. Hope all turns out well!
