glad you had fun Jennifer!

hopefully not forever, not to jinx it but neither kid has had an ear infection since tubes but Sydney never really got infections, it's just that fluid backs up in her ears and doesn't drain correctly so when that happens she cannot hear well. Her tubes are still in but clogged and the fluid is backing up again so another set is needed. The Dr said she should outgrow it at some point but if a year from now we are in the same place we will consider getting her adenoids out, sometimes that can be the cause of the improper drainage, so we will see. For now just going to do the tubes again, way less invasive then having her adenoids out but sooner or later if it keeps happening we need to look for a more long term solution. Her surgery is scheduled for March 20th.

I had the same issues as a kid and mine didn't clear up until I had my tonsils and adenoids taken out, that seemed to solve all my ear problems. blah!
