..In most cases, all a child may need is their mother–they’ll need their mother to kiss or rub away the pain. But when the mommy kisses aren’t sufficient enough, that’s when we come in.

Do you remember those mommy/daddy kisses? Your curious mind could lead you to endure what seems like the most unimaginable and horrible pain ever felt, at least until mommy or daddy planted that soothing and remedial kiss on your face. There was nothing that a band-aid, Neosporin, and a kiss from mommy and daddy that couldn’t make all that “pain” subside. I find myself doing this with my children. My grandmother used to always say, “Let their cry be music to your ears. You have to really listen to understand.”

Now that I fully understand what she meant, I can immediately determine what type of relief I’d have to provide based on the intensity of their cries. In most cases, I’d only have to kiss their little foreheads and tell them how mommy loves them and it’ll be okay. Then there are times where it takes swaddling-while-singing sessions along with all of my “I-love-yous”. Nevertheless, my kisses always provided therapy for their pain. But for the last two nights, there was nothing I could do for Imari. Recently, I’ve had to deal with a new type of pain–a pain that I could not force to subside.

    Ah, the famous ear infection; those are the worst. Those are the type of Doctors I feel don’t get enough credit. The ones who care more to help others than to help themselves. Only if there were more doctors like him.

    Ear infections are definitely not a joke. I have had some as an adult and they hurt and were very annoying, so I imagine the pain that a child has.

    I agree with Dominique, we definitely need more caring doctors.

    Awwww. Im so glad that doctor could help you when you really needed it. The state I live in, NSW, in Australia has a terrible hospital system at the moment, there is never enough bed’s, waiting time is longer than usual, it’s become really bad and quite sad.. it’s the lack of staff and funding that the government put’s into the system. It’s really sad. So whenever I hear stories like your’s, it’s nice to hear, and I think it makes everyone smile. =)

    I’m glad your son got treated to and hope he is doing a lot better now. Ear infection’s seem to be a common thing among young children.
