Moose & I went to the doctor's office today to meat with the ear/nose/throat doctor. His nurse was really really nice, first of all, so that was great. Doc came in and checked Moose's ears. Diagnosis: double ear infection. He wrote us a script for more antibiotics to last him two weeks. Now in 2 weeks, Moose will have his first surgery (oh no!): ear tubes. I know this is a fairly commonplace surgery and isn't that big of deal, but the idea of them cutting into Moose's ears just makes me want to cry. Yes, he'll be asleep and he'll only need Tylenol to treat the pain. But my mommy heart just cries when I think of them making an incision in his ears (or anywhere on him, for that matter). Yikes! Hopefully he won't get an ear infection and his body won't reject the tubes as foreign objects. Of course, I will keep you updated. Please be praying for this little surgery and my little guy, especially since he is supposed to have his one-year-old check-up and shots the following day (which I may move so he can get his pre-op physical & well-baby check-up at the same time).
And thank you all for telling me to trust my gut; I was right this time!
