Nolan has had an ear infection every month since October. With this last ear infection we saw another doctor in the practice and after he looked at the history, he said he was referring us to an ENT. FINALLY! I'm pretty sure we went to the doctor every week in December because I kept thinking he had an ear infection. His only symptoms are that he doesn't eat and doesn't sleep well. This time I took him to the doctor because he had a high fever for 3 days and it turned out that he had a nasty infection in his left ear. Fast forward a 2 weeks and we are at the ENT. He just finished a round of antibiotics and they tell me he has an ear infection in both ears! They also did a hearing test. Neither ear drum moved and he also has hearing loss. I knew during the test that he wasn't hearing the tones and my heart sank. Good news is that he's a severe case so the doctor made time for us next Thursday at 5:30am to get tubes. Hopefully this will solve the eating issue and help with his speech. We will do another hearing test one month after the surgery to see if he has recovered his hearing loss.
