12:11 pm
britney glaser talks to a pediatrician about a painful illness connected to the common cold that's making kids stay sick longer. this time of year, viral infections are as common as the changing weather. pediatrician albert richert, junior says he's treated lots of young patients with runny noses, congestion and cough - and says most colds resolve on their own. but sometimes, you can develop an ear infection as a complication. "when you have a cold, you get
12:12 pm
sinuses and that swelling can basically block up the drain, block up the middle ear space and fluid can accumulate in the middle ear space." when that fluid sits, it can become infected. "that infection causes some pressure and some bulging on the ear drum, which can lead to pain." it can be hard for a parent to know whether or not a child has an ear infection. doctor richert says if it's following a cold, it likely is. "basically, the main thing is understanding what a cold is: maybe a little low grade fever in just the first day or so and then after that, some runny nose and congestion for about a week. when it doesn't follow that progression, when they've been sick for two or three days and all of a sudden they're running fever, or they get worse in some way or are suddenly a lot more fussy, that can be a sign that something's changed and oftentimes that's an ear infection." tylenol and motrin can help ease the discomfort. antibiotics are given after a medical professional makes a diagnosis. if the ear infections are more worrisome, that's when doctor richert says tubes are considered as a long-term solution. "the number of ear infections really isn't as important as the duration of the

said. "when your middle ear space fills up with fluid, your ear drum can't move properly and it muffles the sound. kids who have fluid in their middle space don't hear clearly and so they don't learn to speak clearly." that's why it's important to treat ear infections early. here are some signs and symptoms cdc says to look for when trying to figure out if your child has an ear infection. a fever above 102 degrees. tugging at the ear increased irritability crying and lying down. fluid draining from the ears ad lib main weather

that lets small businesses take tax deductions for business costs up to a certain amount.. now that it's permanent.. that number is $500,000 dollars a year. according to the iowa farm business association.. before this was permanent, farmers would have to wait until the last few weeks of the year before knowing if they could get a tax break on equipment purchases. and for them.. it really comes down to the cost of the assets.. especially with income changes with the markets. "$350-500,000 for a new combine. and add a heads to it, it could be $50-100,000. it really dollars up. that's really where we need those tools to adjust our taxable income from year to year. so if we can sell that grain in one year we can elect a quick write off to manage our taxes. it's a key thing of managing our taxes just not lowering our tax bill." vickre says the permanent section 179 is indexed up each year by 10 thousand dollars.. and an exciting addition is.. farmers
