Well, Colt woke up about 5 or 6 times Saturday night and I just knew...KNEW...that we were dealing with yet another ear infection. REALLY! This is the 4th ear infection within the past month and a half. First he started out with a left ear infection and croup at one doctors visit...then moved on to a double ear infection and strep at the next doctors visit. Yesterday he was diagnosed with a right ear infection and a yeast infection:( I know that sounds really gross, but it looks like a regular diaper rash but it wasn't going away and the doctors said it is very common. Because Colt has been on both antibiotics that they prescribe for ear infections, they had no choice but to move to shots:( So, yesterday he got one shot, today he will go and get another shot and tomorrow he will finish with the final shot:( Before the nurse gave it to him, she warned me that this one hurts...it was very sad:( BUT after this, there will be NO ear infections (fingers crossed)! I'm going to pump him up with Vitamin C, wash his hands a lot, scrub him down at bath time, the humidifier will be on full blast...and so forth...any other suggestions will be taken VERY seriously:) Oh and he has to take an oral medication for his yeast infection plus the nystatin cream that was prescribed to him.
So, after his doctors appointment, we had to go by Sonic and get a "mulkshake." Yummy:)
