My little Lacy - 19 Months

Well, we went three months with no episodes.

Friday she had two. One with my mom during the day and one at home in the evening. Poor kid. She was so pooped after the second one she laid on my lap for about a half hour. That's a pretty big deal for her. She is usually non-stop. Here is a blurry picture I took with my phone.
She has tubes in her ears from too many ear infections and although they both drained a LOT while she was sick, one never stopped. It has been draining continually for weeks. She lost two pairs of earrings because she was playing with her ears so much. I was told that means the tubes are doing their jobs. Recently she has stopped letting us clean it out, which is what triggered her first episode. My mom was being a good grandma and tried to wipe out some of the gunk. She didn't like that. At all.
I took her to the doctor this morning. We were one month late for her 18 month check-up. She is in the 90% in height and 25% in weight. Typical Dairman. :) She also had an ear infection, so I'm not sure why we got the tubes, but I'm not a doctor.
We thought she had grown out of these episodes early, but we are back to watching closely every time she cries.
She did cry once while we were at the doctor's office today. We were in our room waiting for the nurse and she heard a baby crying next door. She jumped up, listened closely and then tried to get out of the room to go help. When I didn't let her out she got very upset with me. Big crocodile tears and all. Maybe we have a future doctor on our hands??

Wow, I am sorry that she has episoded again. Bummer and bummer about the ears too. that has to be discouraging. Does she have awful allergies? Hope the tubes help it all clear up soon!
