My youngest child has been a chronic sufferer of ear infections since she was little.
Most recently, this season, she has had one in Sept 08, Nov 08, Jan 08, and has been off the antibiotics for about 2 or so weeks. Yesterday I was called to come get her from daycare because she had a fever of 101.6. She was making hints (she gets silent ear infections where symptoms are minimal at best) that her ears arent feeling good. I think it might be another one.
Last month, the Dr said if the one she had in Jan didnt go away, she would get tubes.
If she gets 2 more by August.
WHAT?! Im taking her to the Drs today and If it is another ear infection, I think I am going to push for a specialist this time.
I dont want my baby to have surgery, but I dont want her suffering anymore with this. I am worry she might be getting immune to antibiotics (they have had to change it twice already) and I dont want her hearing to suffer.
Ill post an update as My day off today consists of Ortho appts for my oldest, dental appt for me and my oldest, and now a Drs appt for the baby.
