Tomorrow

Tomorrow is the day we've been looking forward to. Koen is getting tubes in his ears.....woohoo! I was a little worried at the beginning of the week because of his cough, runny nose, ear infection (although I knew allergies was the cause-it just turned into a sinus infection/ear infection) but they put him on another antibiotic and it should definitely be a 'go' for tomorrow. Once he gets all of the fluid out of his ears we think he is just going to take off running ;) (He doesn't walk very well right now because the fluid makes him dizzy). It's so strange, I don't get nearly as concerned about putting him under anesthesia as I do Payton. I feel kind of guilty about that - I think it's because I know he's stronger, healthier, etc. And, maybe because I feel like it's such a blessing that this is all we've had to deal with with Koen. Whatever the reason, I know tomorrow we will have one happy little man having all that gunk out of his ears.

Louie's mom wrote a great article and has it posted on her website, I thought you all may want to check it out.....click here.

thinking of you guys and sending lots of prayers your way. Hunter was three when he had tubes put in his ears and I thought that was tough, ha. I guess you live and learn.
I hope that Koen has a quick recovery and is up and moving in no time :)

Good luck today. My nephew just had this done in both ears this week. He was in and out in 15 mins. Now... hopefully he can start talking! He is almost 4. As soon as he woke up from the anesthesia, he wanted to take the cotton out of his ears. When he did, the nurse said something to him and he started crying because her voice seemed so loud to him. I'm sure Koen will be able to tell a difference right away too.
Your kids are precious Tara. :)
Thinking of you all today.

Ari had ear tubes and it was so fast....she did start walking very shortly after...it was if she wasn't dizzy for the first time in her life. The surgery is the easy part getting the drops into their ears for the next few days after is tough. Good luck!

I hope the surgery went well and that you can already see a difference in his walking/balance!
