Ace has been having numerous ear infections. He has had a pesky one in his right ear and we are on our 3rd round of antibiotics and can't get rid of it. He got tubes in his ears two days ago. As usual, he handled it like a champ. He was pretty fussy the day of the procedure, but the next day he was back to his happy self. We were shocked- he seemed to be walking better than he was before the procedure by the 2nd day. Dr. Franklin said he had quite a bit of fluid on his ears, so it makes sense that his equilibrium was better after getting the fluid off.
They gave Ace some pretty good stuff to relax him before they took him back. He was super relaxed. He didn't come out of the procedure that way, which they say is normal. He was MAD!!!! He threw up quite a bit of crud and drainage before we left the surgery center. It was good he got that icky stuff of his tummy.
Our little martian! He has specially fitted ear plugs for bathing and swimming, but he can't wear them for the first week. So, for now it is cotton balls.
