Stuart has another ear infection. Didn't he just get tubes, you might ask? Why yes, yes he did. Yet there I was Saturday morning schlepping up to the Dr.'s office to hang out half the day and drop off another co-pay. I'm so used to handing over that money now that if a week goes by without a Dr. appointment I just drive by the clinic and toss $25 out the window.

The Dr. we saw on Saturday was not my personal favorite, and I've seen most every MD in this rather large clinic. I don't have anything against her, it's just that she looks like she's about 12 and she talks in a high pitched baby voice the entire time. Even when she's talking to me. This is the same Dr. who told my friend Amy that her daughter's throat was so swollen she couldn't even see "that little hangy downy thang back there." So....there I sat on Saturday with a sick baby with a stinky ear and she said (doing my best Betty Boop imitation here) " least the tubes are working."

The tubes are working? What do you mean the tubes are working? He got ear infections before tubes, and he has an ear infection now. What's the difference????????????

So I've been on line reading about ear infections in babies and lo and behold there is a TON of information out there about milk allergies and ear infections. And thinking back, he started eating yogurt and cheese about the time he started getting one cold after another, each time leading to an ear infection.

Could the cow be the culprit here I'm wondering? Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?
