I am so sorry tho hear that you and the baby are going through that. I do understand the long nights etc. It is hard. My sons also get alot of ear infections and very high fevers. I asked the doctor about tubes and she said she is considering it but she wants to wait untill he is two and see if it becomes less. That they tend to grow out of them. Which at first made me think twice but I have heard that before. The only thing about the fevers is to keep his temp as low as you can. I always give cool baths as soon as his fever spikes. Sometimes I end up giving him 3 or 4 baths night just to control his temp. Then alternate tyenlo and motrion. It works. I dont know why but that is the only thing that works for my son.
It may be more then an ear infection. I know that one time the doc. told me it was and he just got worse. So over the weekend I could not take it anymore. So I went to Northcenterl Hosp. There they where wonderful!! Thet helped me right away then did every test they could just to make sure he was ok. Which was good because in the end he had something and they gave hima shot and was better whitin a day. So if that is something you want to do. I would!
