This picture pretty much sums up how Jason has been recently. Jason has been a fussy, clingy disaster for several days now. Actually really its been more like a week. He's cutting three, yeah 3, molars so I figured he was just in a lot of pain from his teeth. Plus Dan and I were involved in a wedding last week so the kids were really off schedule so teeth + off schedule = grumpy Jason, at least that's what I thought.
Then yesterday morning I decided to take his temperature. I'd taken it before and it was up but not much. Well this morning it was 100.7. I knew from talking to the dr previously that if it was under 101 take the wait and see approach. So we waited. We took Jonathan to summer camp and picked up my dad from the airport. After lunch we took his temp again and it was 103 so off to the dr we went. And for the "surprise" of the year Jason has yet another ear infection. So sad.
Then we got to the pharmacy where I just about died. Jason is allergic to penicillin which means he can't have the most common antibiotics for ear infections. He's been off and on omnicief since January and the dr felt like it wasn't quite strong enough to do the trick so we kicked it up a notch. However, this new drug isn't prefered for kids, but Jason can't have the prefered drugs cause he's allergic to penicillin. Since its not prefered our insurance didn't cover it, at all. The pharmacist asked if I really wanted this med. DUH! So $160 dollars later I left the pharmacy with a very foul smelling med. Hopefully this works otherwise we'll start talking tubes.
