AAAA! Ear Infections and Health Insurance!


So I'm pulling my hair out this morning! Caleb started in with a fever again last night. We literally just finished a round of antibiotics for ear infections a week ago. I called this morning to confirm his tubes appointment on June 2nd. Only to find out that even though I had taken Caleb in to the E.N&T doctor twice and scheduled the tubes appointment twice (The first one canceled because of RSV) the doctor doesn't accept our insurance. So now months have been waisted and Caleb has had half a dozen flare up infections in the the middle of it all. And we will most likely have to wait another month to get the tubes and possibly drive 5 hours for the appointment. Ahhh, the joys of living out in the country...

OH man, I feel for ya! My son had constant ear infections when he was younger & we almost had to do tubes, but got lucky & never ended up having to do it. Good luck & I hope he feels better!

I love your graphic! McKinley was really close to getting tubes, too. It is SUCH a pain - and you just can't wait till they can be free from pain and be their happy selves again. I hope it all works out soon!

I am surprised that they went to putting tubes in. I thought they really tried to stay away from that unless it was extreme. Am I just missing a lot of infections? Usually they grow out of that by about 2- 2 1/2.
