Poor Mandy

We just got back from the doctors office.  Mandy has an ear infection.  We thought it might be due to all the swimming we’ve done lately, but no, the doctor said it was a middle ear infection usually caused by fluids from colds not an outer ear infection which would indicate swimmer’s ear.  Which is kind of weird because she hasn’t had any symptoms of a cold at all. Odd, right???

So for the first time ever – Mandy gets to enjoy every kid’s favorite medicine – bubble gum amoxicillin.  I actually think that it is pretty impressive that she has made it all the way to five years old without ever having taken an antibiotic!  I’m just hoping this one ear infection is not going to be the start of a string of them!!!!

P.S.  I know I see her through a mother’s eyes, but seriously she is one beautiful child and she takes an amazing picture!

Awe...I hope it passes quickly so she can enjoy the beginning of her summer break. All of your children are so beautiful:)

I'm sorry she is not feeling well. I, too, am glad she has been spared them for so long. Not like her Dad. She is beautiful and does take wonderful pictures.

I remember when I was her age (or at a a year or two older,), and I used to get ear infections. It is definately no fun. Get well soon, Mandy!
