Being Momma is not always easy

Well as most of you know we have had a terrible time with illness in 2007 and unfortunately 2008 is not off to a great start. Carter has had 5 ear infections within 8 weeks. He has been so sick and snotty the poor little guy does not even remember being healthy. Unfortunately it has also affected his sleep he wakes up all through the night and is terribly fussy and I mean can you blame him I know his ears are hurting terribly. Well today we went and saw the ear nose and throat doctor and we are now scheduled for surgery on January 11 to get tubes put in his ears. He also has a condition they call glue ear which means his ears are full of thick puss that is the consistency of glue, so they will drain all that out before placing the tubes in his ears. It makes me so nervous knowing that he will have to be put under anesthesia but I want him regain a normal life with normal hearing. At this time he has not lost any hearing and I am so thankful for that. So 5 ear infections, 10 antibiotics, 2 steroids, 2 bottles of ear drops, many sleepless nights, and a million breathing treatments later we are headed to get tubes in our ears!
