Nolan kept complaining that his ear was whistling the other day. I checked the hearing aid several times, but I couldn't hear any feedback. I did a listening check, and everything sounded A-OK.
Then, last night, he started screaming in pain. After a little while, he said, "I feel better now," and a thick stream of horribleness started pouring out of his ear. Another ear infection, another eardrum rupture.
Off to the pediatrician in the morning. Nolan insists that his ear is "all better" and that he doesn't need to see the doctor. I disagree...
Not sure if they'll try drops this time or an oral antibiotic. We prefer the oral route, since the drops cause so much pain. Also, I'm pretty sure the tube in that ear is gone, so the drops might not be as effective.
