DB...Well, kaleb went for his 9 month check up...He's little 18.5 lbs and 27 3/4 inches...Anyway, he has another double ear infection....SO, looks like we have to find an ENT for tubes. How did your appt go? What types of questions should you ask? I asked my pediatrician for a recommendation and she said she works with them all, and they are fine....just to find one I'm comfortable wiith. He is also going for a blood test. It is routine but usually doesn't happen until 12 months. It tests lead, anemia...and I think allergies. If now she is testing him for allergies. I hope he's not allergic to our dogs. UGHH....I hope tubes solve this. Our ped. gave us 5 different medicines.....Antibiotic for the ears, a steriod nasal spray and I don't know what else. Poor kid.

BWIND-I actually posted to you yesterday! It's at the bottom of the page now. Audrey IS FINALLY GETTING TUBES! The ENT was super nice and didn't push us either way. He explained the procedure and we set up the date (not til 12/5). Audrey also has another e.i....she is taking something with a Z...Zythro-something. It must be strong because it's a 5 day antibiotic. He said if she gets another e.i. by the time they are ready for surgery that's still ok, they can do the tubes, no problem. We had an awful night last night. Audrey's fever was HIGH and she slept in my arms most of the night on the couch downstairs...then when her motrin wore off she was up crying NON STOP for an hour! Poor thing..oh yeah and her ear drum did rupture this time :( Audrey had blood drawn at her 9 month too...but I think they checked for anemia and a CBC-complete blood count. I'm PRAYING these tubes do the trick...it is sooo awful to have an always sick child :( I know you understand. We have two dogs and a cat. I don't think she's allergic...she doesn't sneeze or anything?!?! Why do you think kaleb is allergic...does he have signs??? Don't worry, Audrey was 18lb 4oz at her 9 month appt...and 28"...she's in the 30th% for weight...Ok, gotta go make our dinner! Talk to you later!

She said Kaleb may have allergies....he is constantly congested and a runny nose...He doesn't sneeze really. I hope he isn't allergic to our dogs. He is on a bunch of meds for it this time. I'm luck he doesn't have a fever with his EI's. Well, I'll chat later...He's trying to clim on everyting
