Today’s Julius: And we are seeing the doctor again …

While little Mr. Julius looked perfectly ok this morning … he came back home from kindergarten with stuff coming out of his ear … and we called our wonderful new doctor and he agreed to come by on his way home.

It is not like Julius is in pain or anything. What happens (obviously .. and I am no MD) is that he gets some infection that builds up liquid in his ear … and while other kids are in pain for days and days .. his eardrums just pop and release the pressure … sounds like a safety valve .. but he needs those eardrums for good hearing … so .. we want to reduce those tears in his ears …

Anyways .. Dr. Mostart was fantastic again. First time that Ritsu met him, and she agrees .. he took his time (not to mention that it was 8 PM on a friday night) and Julius totally likes and trusts him. I think house calls vs. sterile doctor places makes a big difference. So. Julius is again on (different) antibiotics and some medication to get all the pus out of his system …

It seems, if this is going to continue .. we have to look into seeing an ENT specialist … and might want to consider a tympanostomy, which means putting a little tube in his ear .. which allows liquid to come out … well .. we will do everything to make a informed decision on this … until then I just hope that he is getting better ..

I only have this one blurry pic of his meeting with the doctor .. I did not want to disturb by shoting with flash … but you can also see that we showed him pictures of the afformentioned redness that Julius had encountered … and he is pretty certain it was an allergic reaction .. but we have no idea what it caused …
