This last week has been total insanity. Nathan's left ear was infected and he was on Zithromax....one day after he started the Z we were at my mom's and he started screaming in pain...horrible screaming...it was obvious he was miserable...I called the dr. and they called in antibiotic ear drops (yeah that didn't go so well) (and that's putting it mildly!)....that was Friday so I called and we took him in on Saturday morning....his ear was so swollen and red she couldn't tell if the ear drum had perforated or not and he would not let anyone come within 2 feet of that ear...we couldn't tell if it was oozing or if it was the ear drop I actually got in that was coming back out...it was awful...he was absolutely miserable...I was having to alternate Tylenol and Motrin every 3 hours for not quite 3 days and he was still in constant pain....He ended up having to get a Rocephin shot on the Saturday and then when I took him in on Monday for a re-check he had to have another shot b/c it still wasn't healed....I had to take him in on Wednesday for another re-check and it was better...Thank God! But now we go to an ENT but can't get in until the 19th so I am taking him to a new allergist. I know that his allergies are causing the ear infections (but what do I know I'm just a mother not a doctor!)....Nothing and I mean nothing is doing anything to control his allergies....There has got to be something else they can do for him.....there just has to be.....I have taken him to this guy once before and he was a total ***** but he is supposed to be excellent so I am taking a chance that he won't be a total psycho this time and can help Nate with these dang allergies.....
