Anger is the root of all evil

An Audible Improvement

Posted on | October 17, 2016 | Comments Off

It was the third time I’d seen 2 AM in as many days. I was tired. I was cranky, but I was nothing compared to the deep-seated unhappiness being expressed by my inconsolable 18-month old. Hell hath no fury like a baby that has an earache.

Unable to bear the thought of another sleepless night, let alone watching the tears streaming down those little rosy cheeks, I took to the web and came across ear syringing Manchester. There were hosts of wary mothers posting everything from concern to triumph as they too searched for a solution to their little one’s earache woes. One thing was clear: there were more stories of success than not!

Come daylight, we paid a call to the pediatrician who determined that, due to excessive wax buildup, the procedure was, indeed, the right course of action. That night: silence – an audible improvement.
