My son got his 7th ear infection of this year (and also going a month of having a cold). Today we did about a million labs to test for any possible reason as to why he keeps getting infections. While I am happy to soon have answers, I am also more nervous than I have ever been. The worst possible scenarios keep coming to mind, and of course labs could take weeks to come back, since some of them have to be sent away. Depending on the results we may be going to an immunologist off base. They are just a little baffled since usually with these issues the kids have tons of respiratory infections like pneumonia and RSV, but so far we are lucky enough for him to not have those. (Knock on wood.) Just tons of ear infections (11-12 now to be exact) and sinus infections, and common things (like colds) take him much longer to recover from.

Just throwing this out there... has he been seen by an ENT? Of course, I'm sending you good thoughts. Hope he feels better soon. Mine went through two sets of tubes and an adenoid removal before his ear infections finally stopped.
