Now that Whit’s adenoids are out when both tubes are in, Whitney is pretty healthy and happy. But we know almost immediately when that pesky left one has dropped out. Whitney has ear infection after ear infection.
She was treated for one in mid January. The antibiotic used to treat it worked great. That ran out last week. Sure enough, yesterday and today Whitney is again complaining of pain in her left ear.
Melanie and I aren’t sure what to do now. After so many tubes in that ear, I’m not sure we can ever find one that will stay in. And maybe we’re taking the wrong approach. I don’t know, really. I wonder what makes her left ear so uncooperative. The tube in her right one stays in and does its job very well.
I’m grateful that Whit is healthy in nearly every respect. We don’t have to worry too much about heart troubles or stomach troubles like so many of our support group friends. I just hope we can find something that will help Whit to be able to live without almost constant pain in her left ear.
