Mason's Surgery

So Mason has had several ear infections in his short little life and his doctor referred him to a specialist who advised my dd that he needed tubes in his ears.  

It is a minor outpatient surgery and so it was scheduled for today.  Children's Medical center happens to be right down the street from my job, so I came and stayed with them until he went into recovery.  I got a couple of cute pictures of him.  He is doing well and I am confident that this will clear up the issues he has been having.  He has suffered very minor hearing loss due to so many infections, but the doctors say he will be just fine!  

Here's my cutie!  

He sure loves to take pictures!  All you have to do is say "Say Cheese" and he will just smile so big!!  Love that kid!

Yes, I was so glad when she told me they were going to do it.  They say the minor hearing loss is most likely why his vocabulary isn't quite as expansive of most kids his age.

OH!!  I forgot to mention....He called me MiMi several times, LOL.  When they were living with me he tended to call me mom because Jess does.  We would always correct him, but he would never really say it.  I know it's not that big a deal, but it made me smile.  It's the little things!

And you are so right, he is definitely a cutie.   Hopefully the tubes will do away with all those ear infections.

He is just so darn cute!:)  My nephew had the same problem with the hearing loss because of the ear infections ect.  He ended up having to have the tubes put in and his adnoids(?)and tonsils removed when he was about 4-5yo.

His speech and vocabulary did improve immensly after the operation.

 My friend's daughter had to have them put in last year. She was only 1 year old. I guess she's doing better. Good luck to your grandson!! He is adorable!!
