Landon's Ear Update

For the past 20 days, we've been fighting an ear infection in the ear that Landon still has a tube in. He went through 10 days of antibiotic ear drops with no relief, and is finishing up day 10 of oral antibiotic today after being told he had blisters on his eardrum (see story here).

He keeps sticking his finger in that ear saying it hurts and bothers him. So I took him to the ENT this morning. His infection and blisters have cleared up, but his tube was trying to come out but was stuck in a bed of earwax so the ENT pulled it out. Landon cried, but calmed down with a little loving from Mommy. The ENT is certain that it was irritating him and he will experience relief having it out.

We go back in a few weeks to check the ear canal and perform a pressure test to see if another set of tubes is in our near future.

    Glad the blisters are gone.
