This sweet girl will be getting tubes tomorrow morning. Ten percent of me is a nervous wreck and the other ninety percent is just ready to have it done and over with. I really do feel good about the surgery and I really do feel like it will help her tremendously. We met this morning with the ENT, Dr. B. She felt like Morgan Kate was an excellent candidate for tubes because of three reasons. One, the frequency of the ear infections. I think she had six last season and one already this season. Two, the fact that oral antibiotics seems to no longer work in clearing up the infection and that we have had to get the Rocephin shots the last two times. And three, she still has lots of fluid in her left ear, sticky gooey fluid. Fluid that doesn't typically clear up on its own. Fluid that muffles sound. And fluid that breeds bacteria and infections. Yuck. Dr. B wanted to do tubes as soon as possible. She had an opening tomorrow morning and we took it.
Please say a special prayer for Morgan Kate and her doctors, as well as her worry-wart mommy. I know it's a simple, quick, routine procedure, but it's still happening to my baby girl and it still makes me sorta, kinda nervous.
