ENT Appointment

We had Cameron's ENT appointment this morning. At first I was a little skeptical. His ears are fine now, of course he just finished antibiotics on Sunday, and all hearing tests came back okay. The doctor seemed a little hesitant to do tubes. He left the final decision to me. He said it doesn't appear to have the same problems as Cooper, but Cooper was over a year old too, we still have a lot of time. He says I know my child better than he does so I went ahead with the surgery. It's not for another two weeks so I am praying he doesn't get another infection between now and then. I am just so ready to get these cleaned up and get him sleeping good again. I feel terrible having him cry it out at night if his ears are hurting at all. He has had a round of antibiotics every month since before Christmas. We have seen a huge difference in behavior this week since he has been off the medicine, I think it makes his belly hurt.

We have his 6 month appointment tomorrow, stats to follow.

Mommies do know best. K got his tubes early and we have not had an ear infection since last July. Last year, I felt like I was at the doctor every other week. Totally worth it, I'd say! :)
