The doc said if she gets one more then the tubes go in. As much as I don't want her to have any type of surgery, I really am ready to have my healthy, happy little girl back.

Ear infections are definately the worst. We had 5 straight in a span of 10 weeks, and I think now we are working on #6. Noelle is scheduled for ear tubes on 2/3. On the one hand I don't want her to have to have surgery, but like you I would really like my happy, healthy girl back for more than 3-4 days at a time. And at least in our case, because of the fluid she has some hearing loss that should be just temporary, but I would rather take care of it now than later when the infections have caused some permanent damage.

Please keep us posted on how Noelle does with the surgery. I hope the loss is just temporary and that the tubes help.

I definately will keep you posted!! I am pretty nervous about it mainly because I am not getting much in the way of information from the dr. office. They tell me, well the surgeon will explain everything to you before they take her back.. (a whole other vent) Anyhow, I will keep the board posted. And feel free to PM me if you want to chat about it or want more details or anything. (Don't want to hijack your thread)

I think because the procedure is pretty routine they just assume we are fine with it, but as a parent I am nervous too! It really sucks that you aren't getting the information that you need. Do you know if this is an outpatient procedure?

I am sure I will have tons of questions when it gets closer to time for Abigail to have it done. Thanks!

They told me when we scheduled that it was an outpatient procedure. We would check in and out all in the same day, which here is what they consider outpatient. There is light general anestesia involved I do know that, and once they are in there it only takes about 5-10 minutes total time to do the procedure. We got someting in the mail yesterday that told us we needed to check into the Children's Hospital rather than the outpatient procedure clinic. I am assuming that's because she's a little one so they are doing it at the hospital just to be on the safe side.

I know it's routine, but still.. It's my little one that you are taking into a totally other room than where I am, you are going to do stuff to her that I don't know about and I am not going to be there... Totally freaks me out.

That's exactly how I feel! I will be thinking of you in the next couple weeks as the time draws nearer for her surgery. I can only imagine that the anxiety will get worse as the day gets closer.
