I really love it when a "toy" that I buy turns out to be useful. One such item in our household is the otoscope that I purchased a few weeks ago. The only sad part is that Swe-cha and now, hubby, had to get sick before we got to use it.
We used the otoscope to check out Swe-cha's ears for infection last weekend and tonight, I used it again to confirm that hubby's jaw pain isn't caused by ear infection.
In hubby's case, it is really a case of good news that comes with bad. The good news is that he does not have ear infection, the bad of it is that we suspect that his jaw pain is caused by his impacted wisdom teeth. He was really hoping to just get the ear infection which is easily treatable w/ an antibiotic regimen.
