Since I worked all weekend I didn't really see the kids at all on saturday, and then yesterday when I woke up I noticed that Sam had a lot of drainage coming out of his right ear. I started to clean it up and it was so gross, I said something about it, and he then responded that it was much worse the day before. So I cleaned it all up, and then it didn't seem to drain anymore.
I did call the doctors office this morning, completely unconcerned as someone had just looked at his ears on thursday! He didn't have pain and didn't have a fever so I just wanted to let them know but wasn't thinking anything of it, since the drainage wasn't pussy. But of course with his immune system issues they wanted to see him right away. He has a pretty nasty ear infection. I guess the honeymoon phase of no antibiotics has worn off. He has done so amazingly well since the tonsil/adenoid as well as tube placement. He hasn't needed antibiotics since then. In the grand scheme of things we could be dealing with the another nightmare sinus infection, so this is so minor, but it has been so nice to not deal with antibiotics in so long. Now our prayer will be that it doesn't cause an increase in his GI symptoms, most specifically C. Diff.
