If not for bad luck, I'd have no luck at all...

So my son has an ear infection.  We're supposed to be flying out for our trip home on Friday.  The problem is, you can't fly with an ear infection.  It can cause the eardrum to burst.  The infection started late Sunday night. I was up all night with a miserable little boy who cried on & off all night. We got to see the doctor Monday afternoon when the doctor confirmed my fear of an ear infection.  He said it was a severe infection, gave us antibiotics and told me to bring him back Thursay to either clear him to fly or tell us we have to postpone our flight. 
Today my son is still in pain and still running a fever.  He is showing little sign of improvment and I am really stressed out.  We can change our flight, but there is a £200 fee per person and we'llhave to pay the price difference in fares (a last minute ticket costs a pretty penny).  This ear infection may cause is to have to spend part of our trip in my mother's guest room and cut our spending money for the trip drasticlly. We'll know tomorrow how bad the situation really is.

    I am surprised he told you that. We have flown with our son when he has had an ear infection more than once and was on meds, and the doctor cleared him. I hope he is better by Thursday!

    Hi Andrea,
    Maybe it was because he had a severe infection or maybe it was because I'm not allowed to have a stress free trip home! What ever the reason, it worked out in the end, but what a nightmare!
