Max has chronic ear infections. We took him in yesterday, and he has a double ear infection. It's his second ear infection in a month, and his sixth or seventh in the past year. Pediatrician says it's time for tubes, and I agree and am grateful! I was able to get an ENT scheduled to put the tubes in when they do his second surgery in March, so that's convenient as well.
What boggled my mind though is that she told me that kids with craniofacial issues often have chronic ear infections, so much that the ENT's usually recommend putting tubes in prophylactically. Sure wish they would have told me that six ear infections ago.
So what about everyone else? Do your kiddos get lots of ear infections? Did they need tubes?
Its funny, because I'm mostly just relieved about him getting them. Earlier in my parenting career, I would have freaked out at the idea of surgery, but now, it seems so minor in the face of his second CVR in one year...
