When Catie Samples’ infant son Nicholas started having issues with his ears last February, what started as one ear infection seemed to last nearly four months.

“We were on a series of different antibiotics trying to get it cleared up,” says the Washington native who now lives in Brookline. “We went through three rounds of medications until after the third round when we went back to the doctor, and they checked his ears and he still had fluid in them. That’s when they referred us to a specialist.”
