Dr. Moy

Trent complained of left ear pain this afternoon so we went down to visit our doctor.  The last visit was for his skin infection in December, and Trent did not want to get checked.  I carried him in and held him just inside the door so Dr. Moy could take a look at his sores.  Three days later Trent still refused to go, so I put him in the backpack carrier at 8pm and walked down to the office, hoping he would fall asleep by the time we got there.  He did and the follow-up occured without him even knowing it.  Since then, every time we passed the office I would point and say, “Hey, there’s your doctor’s office! or “Dr. Moy is in there helping sick people.”  Envisioning having to hold him down while the doc checked his ears with an otoscope, I couldn’t have been more relieved when Trent said, “Okay, I’m ready to go see Dr. Moy now.”  Trent walked in and climbed up on the exam table and layed down without a second’s hesitation.  It turned out to be an outer ear infection rather than an inner one.  Easily treatable with drops, but no swimming or getting his head wet for 7 days, which in this heat, is much harder that taking oral antibiotics 4 times a day.  Also of concern was some wheezing in one lung.  Dr. Moy decided on an expectorant rather than antibiotics.  We return for re-check in 3 days, and I feel confident Trent will walk in on his own again.
