Dr Heather et al,

The Otomax is working wonders. We're only on day 4 of its use and Katy is
sleeping less as well as more active and interactive. Her gasping and
gulping are almost gone. Katy tolerated the Claritin, but I just wasn't sure
about the artificial sweetener in it, as well. I'm starting to think her ear
problems were brought on by me attempting to be too thorough in cleaning
them. Now I know better.

Thank you,

Connie and Katy
