i want you to know that i appreciate all of you and your input. i still have those ear infections. the doc put me on a antibiotic by mouth and a new ear drop. they are still very painful, but i think the ear infection is clearing up. next week i see the pain specilist and i am working on a list of questions and needs. i just hope he don't accuse of being a pill seaker. i got this again last week. i said that my ears were killing me. doc said to deal with it and take tylenol. yea, right that don't touch anything. as you all know to well. i hope you all are doing well!!!
