Poor Carys

Poor little chica. She can't catch a break!

She's been fighting a nasty ear infection since NOVEMBER 1. Oh yes - that was a long time ago...
It gets better for about a week, then it's back with a vengeance! She's been though a few different antibiotics, which have made her feel better - and gives us all false hope that it's gone.

Saturday, the girls & I were cuddling and getting ready to take a nap. Carys was fine...and then she wasn't. She was puking, crying, had a fever of 102. All of a sudden.
When she was a baby, I bought an otoscope so I could look in her ears (not that I know what I'm looking for really, but when you see something nasty! you know you're seeing an ear infection of some kind...). So I look, and there it is. A nasty ear. We just came off of antibiotics a few days ago & it's back already. Or did it even really go away?
She's got yet another sinus infection.
And I really think she is having problems hearing. Chad thinks she's just ignoring us (which could be true), but something's just not right. And I can't put my finger on it.

Luckily, we already had an appointment scheduled with the ENT for tomorrow. Hopefully, he'll be able to tell us what's going on.
Carys is feeling better today...but she's so drowsy. She's been taking naps several times a day. Which is just not like her ....

Say a little prayer that we'll figure out the reason to her ear issues tomorrow!

Carys is in my prayers - poor little thing. I hope she is feeling better soon and that the ENT can fix those ears once and for all.
