Like father, like son

So, Joshua had his ENT(Ear/Nose/Throat Dr.)appointment yesterday, and we concluded that he is going to have to have tubes put in his ears. Not much of a surprise after the last few months of ear infections, one right after another. Basically the antibiotics are "cooling" the infection, but the fluid isn't draining, so it just keeps getting reinfected. I was nervous at first at the prospect of them putting tubes in my baby's ears, but after all that he's put up with, I'm glad they can do something to help him. He goes in early on Wednesday. I'm still a bit nervous because I'm his mommy, but I know this is only a minor "bump", and he is always in God's hands!

I'm sure it will all go fine, thanks to the good hand of our Lord! Also, it's probably better he get this procedure done now while he's little and won't really know what's going on. Will they have to put him under?

We'll be praying for both of you!

I'm missing the "like father" connection, but we'll be praying for you all and little Joshua

Alicia - yes, they put him to sleep, but no IV or anything b/c it is such a short procedure - only actually 15 minutes.

Rich - the "like father" connection is Joe had tubes put in as a child (a few times I think) and still has inner ear problems and ENT appointments to this day. Some friend you are, you don't even know about his ear problems!! :o)
