today we went to the pediatrician after having a hearing screen done yesterday. We were a little baffeled as to why he wasn't hearing well out of his left ear until we checked in his ear. Jackson has a double ear infection. pink and a little swollen..with fluid. NO fever, no runny nose, no other signs. You would think no big deal. However when it comes to big invasive surgeries...infections no matter what the magnitude...make it a no go. WE are in the process of rescheduling and they have promised he will be out of that cast by Christmas.
Good things that came out of today:
FREE ANTIBIOTICS FOR KIDS: can you believe it, after at least 8 months of being on at least one antibiotic we find this out. Meijer and any pharmacy that matches competitior promotions...gives free antibiotics to kids. FREE, can I say it again. FREE!!! this is going to save us 30 dollars a month. where was this information months agao...i would be well on my way to owning a new vaccum cleaner by know. That fancy Dyson pet vac...to suck up all the dog hair that is causing my allergies to be out of wack...(sorry bunny trail)
MOM to talk to...don't worry this is not just any mom. this is a mom of a kid that has recently gone through bilateral hip surgery and has been in a cast more than once. this is a mom with some very useful information. not that the rest of you don't have great advice...you all ROCK...but this mom will have a special place in my brain with her wealths of information. Can't wait to chat with her.
Good thing number three...I get to enjoy this for four more weeks. The activity and help of a one year old. Love it.
All of these things came out of a trip to the doc for a sickness I prayed my son wouldn't have and seeing a new doctor that we haven't seen before. All things usually bad that turned out to be the bomb today because GOd is good like that.
lessoned learned: God makes everything good in His time. oh wait that sounds familiar. I think I might have read that some where. ok enough of the sarcasm. just another lesson that God has written down for us in His little instruction book. it is full of them.
oh and by the way my child has eaten his first finger food...a Puffy Cheeto...check it out.
Enjoy the rest of your week.
