Ear Tubes

 Our poor little Jude has had a total of seven ear infections in the past six months. Our pediatricians referred us to an E.N.T a few weeks ago and it was determined that our little guy had to get tubes. After looking at his ears, Dr. Heras said she would guess that Jude has had the same ear infection his entire life (so so sad). His eustachian tubes are too small, causing all his infections.

I know his little surgery wasn't that big of a deal, but it still broke my heart thinking about him going in there without me and having to be put out. Luckily, it was only a 20-30 minute procedure and everything went great. To be honest, the worst part was not being able to feed him after 12:00 am the night before. True to nature, Jude was so pleasant and sweet. All the nurses were holding him and playing with him while I filled out all the paper work and while we waited for the surgery.

Sara was so nice and took both girls the night before. It was so nice being able to come home and spend the entire day taking care of and holding Jude. He didn't seem to be in too much pain other then when he would burp. I guess the tubes and the ear drum move in different directions when burping and it causes a lot of pain. We spent all day cuddling on the couch or in my bed. Jude loves being doted on which I adore.  He really is as close to perfect as they come!
