I took off a half day today to take Jace to the clinic. Yesterday when I got up and got him in the tub his ear was all nasty and crusty. Sorry for the graphics. I cleaned it up and then looked deep inside his canal to see this weird funky white looking stuff. I have never seen anything like it so I was frantically calling my friends to see if they have ever seen this stuff in their kids ears. I also talked to a friend who is a nurse who said to bring him in just in case, but that it probably was no big deal. Well, thank goodness, it was just Swimmers ear and a possible perforation of his eardrum, but nothing that won't heal on his own. She couldn't tell much because of the build up of wax in his ear. Yes, yuck, I know. Anyway, she gave me some ear drops and antihistamines and sent us on our way. Let me tell you though, our appt. was at 1:15. We got there at 1:00 which is not normally like me, to not only be on time, but early! We were there for 2 1/2 hours. Let me tell you, that is NOT fun, with a 21 month old. I am exhausted! He was too and is taking a nap as we speak, lol. I took some pictures while we (my mom went with me) were trying to keep him entertained. And yes, he has a tongue depressor in his mouth. Just be glad I didn't take pictures of the blown up latex glove that my mom made eyes on with a permanent marker she found in her purse!
