I'm not sure if you knew, but Bugman is my favorite... well my favorite four year old anyway!
He had an ear infection in September. We took him to Dr. Cata on September 16th to be exact. It was his first infection in almost a year and a half.
Six weeks later we went back. Bugman was still coughing and didn't seem to be hearing us very well. We heard lots of "What??" and "What did you say??" We found out that he still had fluid in his ears.
... and not just fluid, thick, honey-like fluid. The good news... no infection. We started antibiotic round 2.
Four weeks later we went back for a recheck. The verdict - Honey-like fluid in both ears and a referral to see an ENT.
We saw Dr. Turner, the ENT on Monday and he decided to try one more antibiotic. Its aimed at treating antibiotic resistant infections. We go back in January and cross our fingers that this worked. If it didn't, we look at getting tubes :(
