Well it is an ear infection in the right ear which she thinks is a continuation of the last one. She treated it with a short low-dose antibiotic last time and doesn't think it cleared up all the way. As for the left ear, she can't really tell because the tube is still in the ear. She couldn't tell by its position if it was still in the drum or just outside of it but she thinks it is irritating his ear and we are going to do peroxide drops to try and get it to come out and the antibiotic will cover it in case it is infected too. She put Donnie on Omnicef for 10 days this time and we are rechecking his ears in 2 weeks since we are leaving for Disney World then. I asked her about the needing another set of tubes and she said I was thinking right and that if he has another 1 or 2 infections pretty close to this one then she will recommend it, so we will see. Well I am off to the drug store to pick up his script. Talk to y'all later!!! -Liz
