Felix started feeling feverish and fussy on Friday night, so we spent the weekend trying to keep his fever down and hoping he wouldn't throw up on us (he did anyway).
It seems almost less than news to report another ear infection, but he's got another double one. The doctor mentioned probably seeing a specialist for tubes, but then put him on Augmentin. The tough thing about Augmentin is that it is essentially Amoxocillan with some kind of extra acid in it, and it pretty much causes horrible diaper rashes (poor kid had a bad rash before we started). And Augmentin didn't even touch his last infections. Sigh.
My dad had an allergy test last week, with 57 different scratches on his back. He said that in preparation for the test the tech asked him if he suffered from ear infections or sinus infections and if he had eczema. My dad thinks that maybe part of Felix's problem (what with the ear infections and the eczema) is that he has terrible allergies.
I forgot to ask the doc about that possibility, but since we're seeing him again in 10 days to see if it's cleared up (I'll cross my fingers even though I don't think it will be), I'll ask then.
Thank goodness for Medicaid, because the costs of all this would kill us financially. Poor kid. I really just want him to be healthy!
