Playing in Box City
We headed out to the pediatrician's office yesterday, to get a gander at Nolan's leaking ear. The random-pediatrician-of-the-moment peeked with the otoscope and declared a rather severe infection. He can't even see the eardrum, because the infection is so thick it is completely occluding his ear canal. The solution? Ten days of Amoxicillin and Ciprodex ear drops. If the infection doesn't clear, we are to return to try something stronger. Hopefully the Amoxicillin will wipe the infection out.
Nolan hates ear drops. He'd rather chug oral medications by the truckload than deal with the sensation of liquid sliding down his ear canal. You can imagine the fun we're having pinning him down several times per day for the infernal drops.
Hopefully, in ten days, the infection will be gone and we won't see any more leaky ears for the rest of the year. A girl can hope, can't she?
