If anyone remembers, we have been to the ped doc almost every other week for the last few months. He has had URI, sinus infection, ear infection, pink eye, another URI last week. The last few days gfg has been soooooo good. Mood was just typical 5 yr old, nose almost completely dry, no cough. Last night he woke me up complaining of an earache.
I put some drops in his ear and he complained on and off for hours. He finally went to sleep around 4:30 A. M. At 8:30 A. M. he woke up and said he was ok and wanted to go to school. He is still on antibiotics from last visit last week and he had no fever so I took him around 9:00 A. M.
At 11:00 had to go back and pick him up because he was just laying around and didn't want to do anything. Looked bad and complaining about his ear again.
Wound up taking him back to ped doc and they did test for flu and said it was negative but his white count was very elevated... over 29,000. She checked his chest and said all was clear. Both his ears are "congested". She gave us two options. One, get a shot of Rocefen (sp?), start another round of Omnicef and come back in the morning for repeat CBC. If white count down, he can get another shot and stay home. If not down then she will admit him to the hospital for IV antibiotics.
Can't tell you how fun that might be [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/916wildone.gif[/img]
