Hannah has had a horrible wk. Last Sat she woke up running a temp and pulling on her ears. She seemed some better later in the day but was fussy all day Sunday. i took her into the Pedi on Mon. She had a double Ear infection. This is her 5th infection. The Doc put her on antibiotics.

She just seemed to get worse as the wk went on. Wed night she cried for 30min pulling on her ears and then threw up. I took her back to the Doc Thursday morning. Her ear drum had burst. The antibiotics did not work. They gave her a shot of antibiotics and told us to come back the next day.

We went back today and she got another shot. The doc also gave her oral antibiotics. We have a apointment set up with ENt on June 19th to talk about getting tubes.

I feel so bad for her. it breaks my heart to see her in so much pain. I'm praying once she gets the tubes it will help

I'm sorry....it's good that you are so on top of taking her in to see the Doc...you've done all you can do as a parent. Tubes usually do help a lot...I hope they will for her. If she happens to get another infection prior to going to the ENT ask the Doc for some numbing drops to help with the pain. BTW: Putting in tubes only takes a few minutes. I think the whole procedure is much harder on the parents ;-). Good Luck at the appointment.

I am sorry you are having trouble. Tubes are wonderful. Both Cole and Emma did great once they got tubes. Too bad you couldn;t get in before June. We went to VA ENT at St. Mary's. They were able to get Cole in within a week....We had his tubes done the next week to let the antibiotic work to clear them up....they were bulding. Have they given her the usephern shot yet...I cannot spell it...

VA ENT at St Mairy's Dr Brager thaat is who our Ped refered me to. They told me the soonest they could see her was june 19th. I may try calling back and see if I could move up the apt. I'm worried about her getting another infection before we can get her seen

The shots are horrable! Which doc are you seeing? Cole had to get them. I may have just gotten lucky with gettingis so quick, we took what ever time they had. I would call them us to see if anyone cancled. The appointment will not take long. They look in the ears, talk about the history. Jamie and I knew going in that we wanted the tubes if the doc said so. We went on tuesday, and the doc said that he would have made time for Cole that week to get the tubes if his ears were not so bad looking.

Good luck, it just may be busy season with spring and allergies and all.
