It could be worse...

...and I sincerely hope it won't be.

Husband wound up taking Son in to see the doc this morning because Son has been staggering around the house. The doc suspects an inner ear infection; Son's had that stuffy nose and what not since before Christmas and no amount of antibiotics has cleared it up. Although Son's ears and throat are fine, he's still falling over and losing his balance. I didn't know this, but he fell down at school...and he fell off the bus the other day when he got home from school.

The doc wants us to keep an eye on Son until Monday. If Son doesn't seem to improve the doc wants to schedule a CT scan. If Son starts getting headaches or throws up, then we really have to worry.

Okay...but what worries me is that Son was having some pretty bad headaches over Christmas break, but he wasn't sick to his stomach or anything.

When Husband and Son got home, Son fell flat on his face walking into the house.

I'm worried. I know, I should say I pray, it's not something brain related. Please, please just let it be an inner ear thing. I'd even go through ear tubes with Son, just please don't let it be something really bad.

I will say some prayers. It does sounds like an inner ear infection, though. Sometimes I get sinus problems like that, but if they gave Son an antibiotic it should take care of either.

Oh geez, I hope it's nothing serious. It must be heartbreaking to watch him fall on his face. The poor little guy.

Son was on amoxicillan in Feb, and Zithromax last week, and apparently neither did much good with the stuffy nose. I have a feeling we'll be getting in touch with the doc on Monday.

Prayers from me too. Chances are that it really is just an inner ear thing.

When I was growing up I had serious ear problems and had tubes too. I even had ear surgery and all is well now.

Daughter got ear tubes last May and that made a huge difference. Husband asked me yesterday when the last time Son's hearing was tested.
