"You need to see a specialist"

Well, those aren't exactly the words you want to hear from your child's pediatrician. But that's just what Olivia's told me yesterday when I went in for of all things her 15 month well-visit.  Little did I know she had her 9th or 10th (I've lost track) ear infection. Poor thing has had three since mid-September.

I guess she's used to the pain because she doesn't give me any clues she's uncomfortable. No waking up at night, no ear pulling, no fever, no crankieness (well, she did have sum but I chalked that up to the three teeth that popped through this week). Sunday she woke up with a clear snot runny nose and by Tuesday a full-fledged ear infection.

So we're off to see an ENT to find out if she'll need tubes or if there's something else that can be done.  Of course I'll keep you posted, but in the meantime I wanted to post this link to share some FAQ about chronic ear infections for any of you who may be going through the same thing!

oh no! I hope everything goes ok! We will say a little prayer for you guys. I had tons of ear infections as a child and ended up getting tubes put in twice. Hope Olivia feels better soon!
