See this unbelievably cute and handsome boy???
He needs surgery again. :(
We took Josh to the ENT (Ear, nose and throat) doctor today. Since he caught the swine flu and RSV last October, he has been battling ear infections almost non-stop. I am tired, he is tired and it was really getting old. So it was no surprise his Pediatrician sent us back to the hotel on the hill (aka Primary Childrens) to find out what to do.
Now I am not surprised he needs tubes again. Because when he had them put in the first time I was informed a small percent (like 5%) of kids have to have them put back in a second time because they fall out after a year or so and they still need them. So of COURSE Josh is going to fall into that small percent. Our little fighter goes all out!
But the ENT is also going to take out his adenoids this time around since there is always a chance of a third re-insertion of tubes if he doesn't. Seriously... what % do you think Josh would fall under??? His tonsils will also go if he finds that is the case once he gets in there. Why not?
So with his more complicated history and bad track record of recovery with surgery.... we are going to be staying overnight. yea for me. LOL!
Surgery is scheduled for Feb. 11th. We hope to get it done before he gets another ear infection. We don't want anymore dehydration. Wish us luck! Poor guy!
