The verdict is in

H needs tubes in his ears. He has had over a dozen ear infections since November and I'm glad that after our second visit to a specialist he decided that tubes were the way to go. If you are interested you can see a sideshow of the procedure here or read about it here. We go to meet the doctor who will do the surgery tomorrow and then Tuesday morning is the actual procedure. Honestly, I think the worst part will be not being able to give him anything to eat or drink for 12 + hours!


  1. Bless his heart! And yes, you are right, the NPO status is the worst! The procedure takes all of 3-5 minutes, just the anesthesia that takes a little longer. Will pray for a speedy recovery and it has done wonders in kiddos that I know for hearing/speech and even balance with walking/running, etc.

  2. poor guy! our friend's boy had it done on friday last week and he was totally fine running around playing at the church on sunday. hopefully they will do it early in the morning so eating won't be too hard!
