Ears!


My life has been consumed of ears over the past few weeks. Layton had double ear infections at his 4 month check up. He had to be put on two different antibiotics for it to work. The doctor also looked into Reagan's ears and pulled out her right tube because it was basically just hanging there. He said there was some fluid there. A few weeks after that, Reagan went in for a hearing test. ECI set up a free hearing test for her at the TCU hearing clinic. (wonderful place, totally recommend it). While there, the Audiologist noticed her right ear was full of fluid and looked really red. Reagan was still able to pass her hearing test! I took Reagan to the doctor the next day. Yep, she had an ear infection and in the ear without the tube. Last week, I decided to take Layton back into the doctor. Double ear infection again! Today, I had to call in a third antibiotic, augmentin, to get his ears cleared up. I am guessing that by the end of this year, I will have to have tubes in Layton's ears and another tube back in Reagan's ear.

I am so sorry...but if ears are the worst then you are in good shape:) Kids that don't feel well are no fun. I hope they both start feeling better and don't need any tubes!
