So, we are now battling getting him to take his medicine for his ears. It is white and it doesn't taste good at all. He wants to take his pink medicine instead (which is Benedryl). He tells me 'no white, I want pink'. Do any of you have ANY tips on getting this in him. The pharmacist said that we could bring it back to him and he would see if he can add some cherry flavor and see if it will change the color to pink. It already has a grape flavor. The problem is that he is honestly too smart for his own good and as soon as he taste it, he will not want 'pink' any more. I know that there are smart and more experienced momma's out that that might have some suggestions. Please help if you can. We have held him down, which resulted in him spitting it everyone. We have negotiated [which I do.not.like] for cookies, fruit snacks and even carousel rides. All with little luck. Mom and I finally put it in some yogurt and after 2 bites he had it figured out and didn't want any more of that. I am willing to try anything!
I am just ready for him to feel better and be back to normal - after 14 days. He just wants to be held when he isn't feeling good. I feel horrible for him and just want to snuggle with him and make him feel all better. But not taking his medicine isn't helping. We would appreciate prayers as well. That he would feel better and for God's healing hand to be laid on his ears!
I'll be back later with a totally different [and much happier] topic!
