oh, her ears

I have just returned from another doctor's appointment, for Elyn.

Bless her heart. She has another ear infection. Well, I don't know if it is "another" one or it just wasn't cleared up from last time.

She finished her antibiotic Friday and by Sunday was already pulling at her ear, had watery eyes and a runny nose. She didn't sleep well last night and woke up this morning with snot covering her face.

The doctor said her ear drum was bulging and appeared quite infected. Since the oral antibiotic was obviously not doing its job, she got a doozy of a shot.

Poor girl.

She is now asleep and I am sad that I will have to wake her up in 30 minutes to go pick up Nora from school.

Hopefully she will start feeling better.

I'll update on Amazing Race tonight. OH MY GOODNESS. I was not at all happy with the outcome of the show last night, but I guess it's all about how you play the game.

I feel your boys are chronically getting ear infections. Right now, Caiden is on his second round of antibotics. It's such a bummer for everyone...hope Elyn gets lots of rest and feels better soon!

I hope Elyn feels better soon! When I was younger I got ear infections A LOT (tubes twice).

Get well, sweet Elyn!!!
