It has been way too long since I posted a detailed drug review. As lovely as I find them, I know my opinions are not nearly as valuable as real information. With that in mind, I'm writing up a post on using melatonin in kids and wondered if anyone had any specific questions/concerns on that topic. If you do--please comment here and I will be sure to address them!
I had someone tell me they were waiting with bated breath for my next post so I decided to hurry this one along out of the kindness of my heart. (Aren’t I sweet?)
Drum roll please!
The silver lining to our ear infection misadventure? Little Miss got her first job! After we finished all the regular doctor visit stuff, her doctor told us their clinic was running a clinical research study on ear pain drops for kids with ear infections and she qualified! How lucky could one little girl be?
Do you ever think the universe is trying to tell you something? Like, “Hey, Emily, get off your lazy bum! You’re supposed to be running a blog, duh.” Apparently the universe is still in its teenage stage.
It took some serious sickness but I did it! I wrote something! And I still made dinner! (I am pretty much Super Mom.) Little Miss was lucky enough to get a cold a couple of weeks ago (who gets a cold when it is a bazillion degrees outside? Toddlers, that’s who.) The mucus cascading out of her nose then traveled to her ears and, after way too much time at the doctor’s office, we had her first ever confirmed ear infection and her first ever course of the “pink stuff” (aka amoxicillin). While Little Miss’ suffering broke my heart (I’m a wuss of a mother), I was “excited” for the chance to test—and pass on to you—a couple of techniques I had seen for getting medicine into little bodies.
