If you look closely at the picture above you will see that Cami is ever so delicately holding her left ear. Poor girl. Within the past week and a half Cami has had not one, but 2 ear infections.

I took her to the Doctor last week before leaving for Tech for the weekend because she was pulling at her right ear. Sure enough, she had an infection so we got the antibiotics and were on our merry way (or so we thought). Two days later I noticed Cami pulling at her left ear. I kept telling myself it was probably teething and that there was no possible way she could have another ear infection, as she was still on the medication for the first ear infection.

After watching her become more and more miserable as the weekend went on I made the executive Mommy decision that it HAD to be another ear infection in her opposite ear and that she needed to go back to the Doctor. The Doctor confirmed my diagnosis - ANOTHER ear infection in less than a week. Obviously the first medication was not strong enough for our little Miss Cambria so they gave her a new antibiotic this time in hopes to clear up any and all ear infections that she may have currently or that are in the works and on their way.

I am happy to report that after 2 days of the new antibiotic Cami appears to be feeling better. She is eating well again and sleeping MUCH better too. We hope these ear infections are a thing of the past real soon, as it is NOT fun to watch my daughter feel miserable. Until she finishes this medication and we can be certain things are all cleared up Mommy will continue to take good care of Cami and give lots and lots of snuggles. Snuggles help everyone feel better!!!
