But it's okay, we've only got like another sixty odd days left until Spring.....H.E.L.P!!!
So, moving swiftly along, the new course of action is another few days on oral cortisone with a cortisone nasal drop as well, whereafter we have a follow up next Friday to reassess the ear pressure and, if there is no or little improvement, we are going the grommet route. I cannot say that I am particularly opposed to Sam having grommets after dealing with Meghan's recurring ear infections basically from birth up until a couple of years ago, specifically the pain she went through when her right eardrum ruptured. The only thing that ever brought her relief were the grommets and we even settled on semi-perm grommets the last time which can stay in for up to three years. But, here's hoping by this time next week we'll have a healthy and completely recovered Smurf crawling around.
Sam's struggle to regain his health over the past two months has led him to seek guidance from not one...not two...but three different Bibles - just to be sure, you undersand!
