Finn had an appointment this morning with our regular pediatrician to follow up on his ear/sinus infection. The doc said, after digging some wax out of his ears, that it looks like the infection is gone but he still has fluid in his ears, so we need to schedule another appt. with the ENT.
I talked to the doc about Finn's sleeping and eating issues as well, and he gave us a Rx for Zantac. He said it should be pretty easy to determine if he has reflux: if his symptoms improve with the Zantac, then it's reflux. If not, then probably not.
I still think his ears must be a factor in his poor sleep too. The doctor said the fluid in his ears shouldn't cause him any discomfort if there's no infection, but I'm not so sure I buy this. I wonder too if he's got something going on with his adenoids . . .?? Have I ever mentioned how he snorts? All the time. I'll have to record it and post it here. He's been making this snorting sound for months and months. For a long time I thought he just did it because it was a sound he discovered he could make and so he did it . . . just to do it. But now I am wondering if it's really because of some anatomical thing he's got going on. So I will definitely bring that up to the ENT next time we see him.
Anyway, I'm off to go get his prescription filled!
