Alright so I really have been slacking on my blog! We had a crazy week last week with Brinley being sick. She has a ruptured ear drum and strep throat...again!! I took her to insta-care last Tuesday becuase she woke up with all this nasty stuff draining out of her ear. The whole side of her face was covered in it. So they told me that she had so much fluid and crap in her ear that they could not even see her ear drum. Assuming it had ruptured they put her on amoxicillin and gave her some eardrops with a steroid and antibiotic in it. Well I have had my kids to the doctor enough with ear aches that I know I do not like amoxicillin! It does nothing for them but of course I am just a mom so what do I know. By Thursday she was still feeling yucky and her ear was still draining like crazy! I called her normal pediatrician and he said to bring her in. So back to the Doc we went and she did have a large hole in her ear drum and definitely needed to be on a stronger medication. What do ya know??? So he put her on augmentin and she is finally getting better I think. We have to go back in a week to make sure the hole has healed back over. So we are praying for that!!! Friday night Ryan had an Elders Quorum party and that was the first time she had been out in the big world all week. So she was thrilled to see all her friends! It was a fun night and it was good to get out of the house!!
