We brought Dax back to the ENT after the "premature" loss of his ear tube (ahem- 2 weeks) -
the doctor decided he wants to wait to replace it until we give Dax some time to see "if the vicious cycle has been broken."
(Vicious cycle: congestion --> ear infection --> antibiotics --> beneficial bacterial also killed --> weakened immune system --> congestion --> ear infection --> etc.)
I wanted to point out that the cycle is probably, in fact, still vicious- since it was congestion and an ear infection that popped the tube out in the first place. But I kept my mouth shut.
I asked about ear infections being related to dairy. He shot me down (along with our regular pediatrician). I'm still not buying it- and I'm going to continue giving it a shot. I have found far too much research supporting my idiocy.
|"Yes, Dr. Duncan, I have a question. Are you going to put my tube back in?|
So, in the meantime, Dax is back on antibiotics. And he chipped his two front teeth.
So what do you do after a rough week of appointments and disappointments? Celebrate Cinco de Mayo at your favorite Mexican food restaurant!! (By accident, might I add- we were just going to out to eat on Saturday because Mommy didn't feel like cooking and/or cleaning dinner!)
|There was a Dora bounce house!|
|No mam! Give that to Mommy...|
|There was a face paint artist there!|
|There was a clown making balloons there! Needless to say, Dax's popped shortly after this picture was taken...|

|Looks like Mommy is the only one bothered by the snaggletooth situation... I love you, sweet Dax! We are going to get your life issue-free sooner or later! (Probably not. Is that possible to do for a rambunctious boy??)|
