Ears (Part 5 - or how we're personally financing our pediatrian's childrens' college education)

Jack has bi-lateral ear infections.


10 days.

Ear check on Wednesday to see if he's improving - if not then we switch to Rocefin shots for Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday.

Because we leave Saturday for Washington - and given the fact that my parents live so far out on the peninsula - driving every other day to an urgent care for shots should the Omnicef not work just isn't feasible.

Thankfully we're being referred to the ENT - and hopefully tubes will end our poor little guy's misery.

  1. Oh, Kristin. I'm so sorry. I've been there--Andrew had tubes placed. I hope you're able to get it resolved soon. I know the feeling of spending your time constantly between diagnosis, the pharmacy and re-checking of ears. It gets old really fast.
    Hope the Omnicef does the trick. Why does it always happen when one is heading out of town?
    Safe travels,
