My little man

Most of you know my little man has had a rough time with ear infections. (Granted there are probably a ton of new people that have no idea who I am.) Just wanted to let you know what is going on. It turns out his actual tubes are infected, which is why we just cant seem to get rid of these ear infections. Today (in about an hour or so) we are removing the old tubes, putting new ones in, and taking his adeniods out. Please give us your thoughts, I know this isn't major surgery, but I am nervous. THis time he will be out for a while so he has to have an IV and ET tube.

  • I had my tubes in and out throughout my childhood. I constantly had ear infections even after getting tubes put in.

    I will always remember the bubble gum smell or flavor they used to put me to sleep. I will always remember them giving me popsicles when I woke up.

    Hang in there, I hope the surgery goes well.

  • You are in my thoughts!! My middle son had that done years ago when he was not quite two. I know how nerve racking it can be... Hang in there, momma...
