Lend me your ear...

My poor baby girl got a cold about 2 weeks ago. From that she developed a cough. Last Thursday she got conjunctivitis (pink eye) in both eyes. Then she was running a fever off and on all weekend, but not showing any other new symptoms. We took her to the doctor yesterday and she has a double ear infection!!! She was not showing any signs that her ears were hurting her. I couldn't believe it. She is officially on antibiotics for the first time ever. I hope it knocks this crap out quickly. We are going out of town for Thanksgiving and I don't want to put her through the drive to Houston if she is not feeling well. Plus, she's been sick long enough. C'mon upswing!


  1. Oh, and when the course of antibotics is done, make sure to give O some probiotics for about 2-4 weeks (comes in powder for infants/mix in her sippy cup with juice or milk) to restore the balance in her gut because antibiotics kill off the good bacteria too and can lead to an overgrowth of yeast.
