My 4 yo has had 3 sets of tubes and my 2 yo has had one set. It's really not that big of a deal. My 4 yo has also had his adenoids removed and his tonsils removed....the tonsillectomy was a bigger ordeal, but he did really good. Just stay calm yourself, don't freak out or anything...if your child sees this it will make her nervous and upset. Just ask a lot of questions when you see the ENT. Has the pedi determined a cause for the repeat ear infections?? My 4 yo has terrible seasonal allergies. He gets infections even with the tubes in his ears and is on medication to help with the severity of the infections. My 2 yo continuously got infections (he got his tubes when he was 11 months old) from having bronchitis and RSV. Good luck! I am sure your DD will do just fine!!
