Our poor Brookie has had several ear infections in her first year. The average baby has one, she is on five or six, depending on how you count. When she got her ear infection over the holidays, we knew that when we went back for her recheck we would get sent to a pediatric ENT for evaluation. This past Saturday we went to the ENT to find out she had yet ANOTHER ear infection. Needless to say, the ENT highly recommended that she get tubes. She constantly has fluid in her ears, which makes her hearing muffled. Plus, she is in constant pain and is becoming resistant to antibiotics. Putting in tubes does require surgery in which she needs to be put under (luckily, it is gas, not IV) so tomorrow we are heading to Lurie's Childrens Outpatient center for her surgery. I won't lie, I am nervous and feel terrible because she get so upset anytime she sees doctors and cries now. I will just be glad when it is all over and we can have snuggle time!!!
