Ugh! 7 hours in the e.r.

I went in to check on dd last night before I went to bed. Her breathing was heavy & fast. So bad it was like she couldn't catch her breath. I waited a few minutes & went back to check on her. It was the same so I decided to carry her to the e.r. After being there for 7 hours we find out she has a double ear infection & of course a cold. She has had 3 ear infections before and never had problems with them bothering her. The same thing this time. If it hadn't of been for her breathing we wouldn't have known about the infection.

Aww, poor thing. I hope she gets better soon.

We had that problem a couple of weeks ago. My youngest dd hadn't been sleeping well, she showed no other signs. She didn't tug at her ears and was eating fine, just didn't want to sleep. Decided to take her in to the pedi and come to find out she had an ear infection in both ears, one side was worse than the other.

My ds had chronic ear infections. He got to where we wouldn't know he had one he was so used to them but he wouldn't sleep refused to nurse. They finally put tubes in at 9 months and removed his adenoids at 17 months

My daughter is the same way. I never know when she gets ear infections, although its a little easier now since she had tubes in her ears. She had about 10 ear infections in a year!

Poor thing. My dd is the same way. I took her to urgent care last year and the doctor said her ear was horribly inflamed and didn't believe me that she wasn't complaining about it. So he asked her if her ear hurt. She said yes and he asked her which one....she pointed to the wrong one. Lol

Weird thing is we have friends whose last name is Merrell & it is spelled the same way too, but they are not kin to us!
