..."Our practice does not refer to an Ear, Nose, & Throat specialist until after 6 ear infections."

{insert record scratch here}


Solchop and I went to the doctor's office this morning as a follow-up to The Great Eustacian Failure of 2013.  And even after 4 ear infections this year, our pediatrician confirmed that she generally will not refer to an Ear, Nose, & Throat doctor (ENT) until after 6 ear infections.

Again, awesome.

4 down, 2 to go.  I am hereby resigned to grin and bear it through 2 more screamfests from my little MiniMon. Say a little prayer for our household.

I'm not sure what to wish for:

  a) 2 more ear infections (which would expedite the ENT referral, but which would also make me want to claw my own ears off)
     { or }
  b) a future of healthy ears (which would just leave us happy, healthy, but forever wondering if another infection is looming in the distance... dun dun dun.)

Tough decision.

On the bright side, however, Solchop was quite positively *radiating* oodles of happy today at the doctor's office.
You know.
Sitting down in front of 3 strangers and, 
while saying "szzzcchhhhhh" (or "shoes" in Solayan),
asking them to put her shoes on her feet.  

Like I said, chick's all about accessorizing.  Word.


 High five for Western medicine.
