Cleaned Out

At the ENT clinic today, Ethan was given a clean bill of health. Dr. Lynn Lim is a pediatric ENT specialist. She took a look and said that Ethan's ear drum was not perforated, just a bit scratched from the horrible worm that was in his ear (see previous post!). They suctioned out his ear which caused more wailing due to the loud sound it makes and we took him home.

As for the worm, they're not sure whether it's even a worm or some kind of larvae. The nasty bug is being sent to parisitology where they can hopefully tell us what it is and how it got into poor Ethan's ear.
