Hi Texas,
I did behave badly, but, ya know, Carson, needed help and I just barged in and insisted.I'd rather things were different, but I do believe I'd do it over if I had to.These kids are everything.

OMG!Kades that is horrible I just had my very first ear infection a couple of months ago at the age of 49 I was getting too aggressive in cleaning my ears and brought it on my self but having gone thru it I know it is an awful pain, now I know why my younger brothers cried so much when they got the ear infection. It hurts like h**l.The only thing that really works is antbiotics the only other thing for a little relief is some warm air from a blow dryer to make the pain stop as long as you use it but the pain comes right back once you stop.How inconsiderate of these people to let a child suffer like that.Fortunatly I had some Ampicillan that friends gave me when they buy a supply from Mexico.It took care of the problem. I have a book called( Where there is no doctor).Its meant for third world countries.Any way it shows you how to diagnose certain problems and on the back pages in green tell what how much medicine you need to fix it it So I looked up the ear thing they tell you what to look for what you need to fix it and how much medicine you need to fix it. When you have no where else to turn its a great book to have.
Will post link in a minute.JP

Kadesma, I am sorry you had to go through that! It is so awful to see our little ones in pain, isn't it? I hope Carson is on his way to getting better soon - and good for you for getting him the help he needed!

Thanks JP,
I feel so lucky that my DH is a pharmacist,it sure helps, he had it called before the doctor visit, but he can only fill rx's not write them so a doc was needed..But we got some amoxacillian and this should do the trick.

I know its a primitive book but has alot of good info when you are at your wits end.Also I have also just showed up at a doctors office if Im really stressed like a panic attack and just cant wait for an appointment because I can not breath and do not want to suffer thru the weekend.

Where There Is No Doctor

Oh boy michele, it was a horror. Poor little kid. He's had the first dose of anti-biotic and finally fell asleep. So, now just get all the med in him and he will be fine.Mommy is staying home with him tomorrow so that will help alot.
kadesma who is pooped

Thank you JP, I'll look for a copy to keep here in case I need it. You just never know when it might be needed like today!!!

You can even just blow the hot air from your mouth into the ear to stop the pain for a while but you cant do it forever but the warm air works for as long as you do it,

This afternoon as Carson was leaning against me I put my head down so my nose was at the top of his ear and he nodded off from the warmth of my breath. I'll call his mom and remind her of that and to try to keep his head elevated that helps to relieve the inner pressure. Thanks for reminding me.
