Chase just can't seem to stop trying to keep up with the Joneses.
He had his 1 year check up today, and- surprise, surprise-- fluid in his ear again!
This is the 4th ear infection he's had since February. He's probably been on antibiotics more than he's been off them in the last 3 months. So, the ped said that we could either wait the summer out and see what happens now that it isn't really cold/flu season anymore, or go to the ENT for a consult.
I'm going to call for an appointment today. I'd rather just have this done and over with instead of waiting for the inevitable. I feel like every time he gets the slightest sniffle, it turns into an infection. I don't want him to end up resistant to every antibiotic on the market by the time he's two! I also don't want to risk him having chronic ear infections because they happen so quickly that I miss them, and he's so used to them that he doesn't even complain.
So, I guess we'll be jumping on the ear tube bandwagon. Woo-woo.
