On The Mend

Well, Matthew's eardrum did not ruptured after all...thank goodness! He does however have a pretty severe ear infection. Bad timing too, as today he would have made the really fun trip with his class to Plantersville Texas, for the Texas Renaissance Festival. I hate for him to miss anything... this being his last year of School. Our visit at the doctors office yesterday went pretty much as expected. Randy restrained, The Doctor examined, Matthew screamed, and I to no avail tried to calm and comfort him. This is just one of the many hurdles of having a non-verbal child. After the doctor finished the examination, we were all pretty much  frazzled and in need of a sedative. Randy took Matthew back out to the car while I got the prescriptions, and talked with the Doctor. What the screaming boils down to is maybe an anti-anxiety medication is what he needs? But he is only like that when he presented with the unfamiliar. He has the sweetest personality, and a most outstanding sense of humor. Other than the occasional antibiotic...he has never been on medication of any kind. I'm just not sure what to do.
