ears

Elden is having a tough go of it lately. Either his ear infection isn't getting any better with the cefdinir or he is having an FPIES reaction to banana. He has vomited twice today and is still tugging at his right ear so we have a follow-up with his pediatrician tomorrow afternoon. I have an inkling that they will be doing the cefdinir injection and getting a referral to a specialist to discuss tubes. Please be praying that Elden will start feeling better and Jon and I will make the medical decisions that are in his best interest.

In the meantime, here is a picture of my favorite gardeners:

  1. Oh man. Medical decisions for little ones are so hard and complex. I know you guys will make the right decision for Elden. In the meantime, praying he feels better SOON.

  2. I'm sorry he is feeling tough. Question - did he vomit after the medication? Is it a new prescription? Some kids are FPIES to ingredients in medication. Good luck and feel better!

    1. No unfortunately he's been on the cefdinir before... that being said, he was on cefdinir when he first had his rice reaction. I don't think it's FPIES to the med itself but perhaps the med is messing with his body to make him FPIES to previously "safe" foods :(

    2. I hope it's not an FPIES thing and something that will resolve as the infection clears. Unfortunately, so much of this is trial and error :(. I hope you get some answers soon!
