So, my little guy had surgery, again, last week. He previously had tubes put in when he was 13 months, but they have since fallen out, and after 5 -6 ear infections this year alone, the ENT said he needed tubes again. They also decided to take his adenoids out, hoping that would negate the need for tubes a 3rd time around.
The surgery was pretty quick – we got to the hospital at 7 and were on our way home by noon. The first time around the first couple of days were very hard. Aiden was in a lot of pain and had to take narcotic medication to help ease the pain. This time around the surgery seemed much easier on him. He was up and moving around happily by that afternoon. But…he has since developed a fever. They aren’t sure if it’s just a virus or an infection from the surgery so he’s on antibiotics and possibly we will have to trek back to the ENT. He’s quite miserable now, poor thing. So he’s been home from pre-school this week, I’ve been squeezing in work where I can and putting in some late nights, all while trying to stay sane. With any luck he’ll be on the mend soon.
