E.N.T. is outta sight!
Well, I called it. Ding ding, it's time for tubes round three! I took Sean (with Ella in tow) to our wonderful Ear Nose and Throat specialist (Doctor E) today and it was confirmed that Sean is missing a tube and has clear fluid in one ear. Good news is the infection has cleared. I had them check his chart to remind me when this current set was put in: May 23, 2008. Didn't even last a year. Dr. E says that he will use t-tubes this time, which are designed to stay in for 2-3 years, with check ups annually.
Surgery is scheduled for April 24 at the oh-so-fun check in time of 6:30 a.m. This year Doug will have to take him solo, since I do not want to try to manage Sean and Ella that early in the hospital by myself. I Will stay home with her and get Aidan off to school. Last year I think I got him in and out and home right as Aidan was heading to school. Dr. E is swift!
I am so glad I booked the infection follow up with Dr. E directly and didn't waste time going to our Ped first, then to referral. I'm glad that Dr. E gets us in when we need it!
