Rough Day!

December 12, 2006

Lucas has been on a new antibiotic since last Tuesday. It is supposed to be the best one available. Well, yesterday, he started acting fussy and congested again. Today he had his 18 month check up with the doctor, who said his ears are still infected and the antibiotic did not work. He cannot have his surgery unless his ears are cleared up. So the only next alternative is to give him antibiotic injections. He has to get them once a day for three days. We went back this afternoon to get the shot, and he got 1 in each leg. After the third day, he will start taking a medicine at bedtime that is supposed to prevent the infections. Hopefully all of this will keep his ears cleared up until next Thursday. We spent a total of 3 1/2 hours at the doctor’s office today!

On a positive note, the doctor said Lucas is talking at or above the average for boys his age 🙂 and he weighs 23lb and is 33 inches tall!
