Ear Infection, Round 2

Poor Baby C was diagnosed with a double ear infection two weeks ago. I didn't know he had an ear infection - there was absolutely no indication until it his eyes started to water and get all gunky. I was shocked to find out it was an ear issue. We got a prescription for antibiotics - 10 days worth. The 10 days were up last Wednesday. By Friday afternoon his eyes were watering and Saturday morning he woke up completely congested. Back to the pedi we went, to discover that his ears were still infected. Now we're on antibiotics, round 2.

The first one must have tasted better because he would actually sip it out of the spoon. I don't know what the difference is this time around, but we're back to holding him down and using the syringe, even after we paid $3 to have grape flavoring added to it. Poor kid spent the whole weekend looking completely miserable. Luckily, he acted fine for all of Saturday so we were able to get out and enjoy the freakishly nice weather. It all fell apart Saturday night, and Sunday was a very long day. Miserable baby makes for a miserable mom, and while it's not a good excuse, I didn't keep up with the shred this weekend. I feel the guilt, and I'm definitely back to it tonight.
