10 days of antibiotics

Today marked the 10th and final day Zachary was suppose to be on antibiotics for his double ear infection. We had the inclining that something was still not right. Zach is still putting his fingers in his ears and has been losing his balance a bit here and there. So after a cranky morning with Zach - Dustin graciously took Zach back to the doctor during his lunch break today.

Well - the worst ear from 10 days ago looks good, it is the second ear that wasn't "as bad" 10 days ago that still looked infected. Apparently 10 days of amoxicillin wasn't enough. So now we have 10 days of Omnicef. Fun oh fun. We have Zach's 2 year appointment with the pediatrician next week - so these ears better look brand NEW by then!

Has anyone ever said anything about needing tubes in his ears? My kids don't get ear infections but I thought someone told me once that their kid got them all the time and once they got tubes it really helped. Might not hurt to ask about at your next appointment? Let me know.

So sorry you've had to deal with that! We just finished antibiotics for 2 of my kids for ear and sinus infections. What a pain. Hope he's feeling better soon!
