Okay, so if he is supposed to get the abx 3 times/day for 10 days, (morning, afternoon and night) and we gave him 1 of the 10 days, (a dose Saturday afternoon, Saturday night, missed Sunday am, but gave Sunday afternoon, none since Sunday afternoon, it is now Tuesday night) would you start them again?
I'm not sure if 1 of 10 days - 2 days ago - is considered "starting"? Probably? Is it too late to restart?
He's had no fever since Monday at 5am and was super tired yesterday but 80% himself today (Tues). He acted like his ears hurt yesterday (Mon) so I gave him Tylenol before bed to help him get to sleep, he fussed a little in the night, didn't want to sleep on his left side and acted like his ears hurt this morning. So I put breastmilk in his ears this morning, and he's acted fine/not in pain all day, (knock on wood...) and went to bed easily tonight and has had no issues lying on either side today/tonight.
Would the duration of the fever (5 days) be what led the doc to believe it was bacterial? (He has an appt on Friday to have them checked again - I was thinking that if it's not gone by then, I'd do abx then?)
