Urgent: for my fiance's daughter
#1
My fiance's daughter has had recurrent ear infections over the last several months. This is the third time in a while where at least one of her ears has been in pain. My fiance gave her a couple of rounds of ear drops and she's on bed rest right now, but the pain is obviously getting to her, because she'll periodically cry and/or scream. Could you please pray that her ear feels better soon? Thank you.

I will pray of course, but you might look into a bilateral myringotomy (tubes in the ear to relieve pressure). When I had them as a boy, the only remedies were penicillin and sulfa. When the infection became resistant to those, it was warm sweet oil or cigarette smoke blown in the ear to relieve the pain.

When my two oldest boys had them there were multiple antibiotics available, but they both ended up having tubes inserted. Bingo! No more pain. The tubes fall out naturally as the child grows, which usually take care of the problem.

Very true. I also had tubes in my ears when I was a child. If this continues to be a problem, that could very well be something to consider.

She just took some children's Motrin for the pain, so we're waiting for that to kick in.

Thank you for your prayers.

Well, it seems that she's fine now. She's chatting and laughing.

Thank you again!

Of course.

And glad to hear she's feeling better. :)
