Ear Infections SUck!!!

Well, it's been awhile sinced I've blogged. Been kinda busy chasing this young-in around. SHe's now officially a HANDFUL!!! She keeps me busy and going constantly. I hardly ever get to sit down and write or FB anymore because she needs my attention, if you know what I mean. By the time she gets to bed and I sit down, I don't want to get on the computer.

Back when Addie got Pneumonia, she also had her first ear infection. Didn't think much of it, but later on she ended up with double ear infections. She wasn't acting too bad, but glad I took her. I never can get in to see Dr. Kastner when I go. Addie always sees a different doctor. Anyway,he gave her a strong antibiotic, which may have helped a little but it didn't get rid of it. She's been REALLY cranky and not acting like herself lately. Not too mention I think the terrible twos have started a little early with "NO" this and "NO" that, and I gotta have it MY way! Don't get me wrong, she does have her good days and they're really good. But her bad days are really bad. It has been so exhausting lately. Scott gets home around 730 or 800 during the week, but he helps a lot when he's here. Anyway, I took her back to the doctor and I'm so glad I did because she still has the infections. He said her ears look atrocious(sp?) especially the right one. He was surprised she was sitting so calm and not screaming her head off. His news wasn't sounding good at all. He was thinking the last antibiotic should have taken care of it, but still put her on something different. Go back Monday to see if it helped. If not, we may try the shots, but I've talked to a lot of people about going ahead and getting the tubes. I'm so confused and just want what's best for her. We will probably be visiting an ears, nose and throat doctor very soon. Right now, I'm game for WHATEVER as long as it fixes the poor baby!
