3.31.10 How much are they?

Well today the system screwed us. We have been jumping without delay through all the hoops trying to get our insurance switched since Jeff left the Ritz. They have been giving us the run around, and needless to say, that has left us without insurance. Jakob has been having the same ear infection for almost a month now and we have been through two rounds of antibiotics. The ear specialist told us to try one more round and then we will look into adnoid surgery. I went to get his prescription, and instead of the usual 5 or 10 bucks, it cost us $142. I was so upset. I hated paying that, but I just want my son to be better. I dont have any confidence in those stupid ear drops though anymore, and really just want to get on with finding something that will work.


  1. oh poor little guy, I hope he gets better soon!

  2. I haven't tried it yet, but I hear garlic oil is a good natural remedy for ear infections. Maybe you could look up info on it and try to get your hands on some (at a health food store). I'm sure it'd be much cheaper and healthier on his little body. If you do try it, let me know how what you think. (Also, there may be a food he is allergic to causing the recurring infection, or maybe he's around secondhand smoke?? - I hear that can cause them, too.).... There's my unsolicited advice :)
