It’s been another eventful week in this house with the kids health…
This time it is Abbie again and it unfortunately looks like this problem is not so quick & easy to solve 🙁
We have been in and out of hospital with her since Monday & either to the hospital or the doctor every day this week… Poor Abbie has a terrible ear ache and it looks like this has been an ongoing pain issue for her since at least the beginning of May if not longer.
At this stage it looks very probable that she has some fluid in her middle ear that is causing continuous infection which is unlikely to be able to be resolved without surgery.
It now ALL makes sense…. The 4 courses of antibiotics since May for reoccurring ear infections, the fact she screamed blue murder all the way to England on the plane, the fact we’ve only had 3 full nights sleep since May without her sleeping with me and finally her overall on and off extreme grumpiness for ‘no apparent reason.’
To cut a very long story short we are finally seeing a specialist this afternoon to discuss where to from here… so far the advice from the hospital staff has all been that surgery is pretty inevitable and that she will also more than likely need to be on continual antibiotics until that happens.
But we will reserve judgement until the specialist has seen her and made that call…
So please think of her (and us) in your prayers as this all goes on.
It has been a grueling week but I’m just pleased that we are on our way to finally getting some answers!
