When my sibling was diagnosed with an ear infection, Mom took him to see the doctor. The doctor gave a prescription of amoxicillin. My Mom wasn't sure what to do so she asked her sister-in-law to help. It took the two of them to hold the kid down to pour the amoxicillin into his ear! It was supposed to be given to him by mouth! True story! The most amazing Mom ever!
When my son was 12, I began working in an ER as a tech. I went home to practice washing out ears to remove foreign objects. He wanted to do it, so I started cleaning his ears. Normally not painful. Then he started screaming, "I cant hear! I'm telling dad!" I rushed him to my job and they removed a BB from his ear. To this day, we don't know how it got in there!
