Her little ears

OK.. my son at the ripe old age of 5 1/2 has yet to take an antibiotic. EVER. The middle child has had a couple. One for an ear infection and one for pneumonia. This 3rd child is a Dr.'s dream.
She is 11 months old and has had 4 ear infections and the last 3 since just after Christmas. This is very disheartening. :( She has had a stronger/different antibiotic for the last 3 also. We go on Monday for an follow up each check. Her Dr. said at the time of the 3rd infection that if she keeps getting them we will have to see a ENT Dr. So I'm sure I will be getting the referral on Monday. I'm a little freaked out knowing my tiny baby will have to be put under. So I'm hoping the infection has cleared up after this last round and that she doesn't get anymore. Simply so we can avoid the tube surgery.

Awww, poor sweet girl. I went through the same thing with Jack when he was her age and we came thisclose to tubes. Thankfully, it didn't have to happen and he has been clear of ear issues ever since. I really hope she is all cleared up when you go to the doctor. I know tubes can do wonders for kids but I'd be worried about the procedure in your shoes, too. Good luck!
