Christine - We had the same issue (with Gabby's ears) as you know. her Chiropractor gave us some Garlic Drops to put a few in her ears and it actually works really well. When she was in a bit of pain this weekend we put those in and it helped her sleep. Just wanted to let you know. :)

Thanks Jess! I also forgot about putting some drops of breastmilk in her ears. I'll have to remember that for next time. I think this infection popped up because she's still getting over her cold. :-(

I am way behind but I have been reading. So Hello to everyone!!

Happy Birthday To Teddy & Selin though!!!

AFM - We had her 6 month appointment today. She however didn't get her 6 month shots because she STILL has an ear infection, and now it's back into both ears. The poor thing slept like crap last night. Luckily though her RSV test came back negative - although she hated that test. Didn't realize how far up they stick that swab. She was not a happy camper. She then had to have the antibiotic shot in her leg. We have to go back tomorrow and Thursday for the last two doses. Then I have to bring her back in on Monday for Shots and then a month after that I think for the rest of them. She has to get the flu shot next monday. I just hope that she can kick this ear infection. If she doesn't after this round of antiboitics then we are off to the ENT....to see what our options are. I just want to get through winter. I am hoping the chiro appointments will help. My poor little girl. I hate seeing her in all this pain> at least she is happy most of the time. I am also hoping to kick this soon so that she and I can both get some sleep.

Jess--you should see a difference in Gabby as early as tonight. The shots were the final ticket in clearing up the ear infection we battled for 6 weeks.

Christine - how is Selin 1 year old? Wow! Happy birthday to her! Boo for you guys being sick again. Are you feeling better? Glad to hear the teaching is going well!

Jess - UGH!! I am so sorry she still has the ear infection! Has it been over a month now? I feel like you guys have been battling it for weeks :( I hope the shots and the chiropractor work and she is finally better.

AFM - Evan *really* giggled today! He's been making laughing noises while he smiles for weeks, but this was a prolonged giggle! It was the sweetest noise ever, and now all I want to do is make him giggle again :)

Tomorrow I have a surgery scheduled for the abscess that I've been dealing with for months. I hope this finally fixes it because I've been having to clean and re-bandage the thing every day since last June :P Wish me luck!

Alyssa - She has had an ear infection since January 20th, so a little over a month now! I am really hoping it helps. The hard part is, that the only reason we knew anything was wrong because of her sleeping and while her ears might be better, she has a cold or something so she still can't sleep. so we aren't getting anymore sleep even wtih the meds...it's so difficult to see her so tired (and me) :)

Awesome with the giggle! Gabby doesn't giggle/laugh very often (mostly just smiles) but when she does it's so cute!! Hope you can get it on video.

Ash - good to hear you're enjoying the vacation! And OMG I can't believe you guys met up!!! I'm so jealous! I'd love to meet all you guys and hang out with everyone and their bumps and babies :) Did you take photos?

Jess - hope Gabby will shake those ear infections off soon!
