Third Times a Charm?

Many of you have asked...

"How is Corbin doing?"

I bet you got this reply...

"He is doing much better."

BUT HE'S NOT!!!!!!

Yep, we still have an ear infection (assuming it is the same one) which is causeing breathing problems, running nose problems, sleeping problems, crankiness problems, mommy not sleeping problems, sick of shoving medication down this throat problems, and nursing problems!

So we are now on our third anitbiotic- each one has been sequentially "stronger" than the last. I hope this one is the one the kills it and we can get back to our "normal" life. Actually, he has been such a trooper. If I hadn't known what was really going on I would have just guessed he was a little irratible because of teething, but it's sadly much more than that. Poor guy, we love him so much.

I hope he gets better soon! Nothing is worse than having sick kids!

i'm sorry, that's the pits. hopefully this round works. maybe he needs tubes in his ears or something if he keeps getting ear infections that is. maybe he just has really bad drainage issues. my friend's little boy pretty much had continuous ear infections for the first 2 years of his life,and her pediatrician did nothing but prescribe antibiotics. she finally took him to an ENT doc, and the Dr had never seen such horribly infected ears and sinus' so she bumped him up to the top of her schedule for tubes. not to freak you out or anything, i'm sure he hasn't gotten to that point, but just something to keep in mind if he keeps getting infections.

on another note, yes, kendra and i have talked a little about running. she said she is wanting to start running a little faster, and did a 5k. she's great. we will for sure hang out more! thanks for putting us in touch!

Sorry to hear about the ear infections those are no fun. Maybe you've already tried this, but my pediatrician once prescribed ear drops for Tyler to help numb it and help with the pain. I don't know if it really helped, but I thought I'd throw it out there.
