graham: tubes.


Last Friday we went to our ENT to have Graham checked out to see if he would be a candidate for receiving ear tubes. You see, he'd had an ear infection for the past eight weeks. I mean, don't get me wrong, there were a couple of good things that came from being sick for so long. We literally tried out every antibiotic under the sun and along the way discovered he was allergic to amoxicillin (just like big brother Sawyer). And because he was on antibiotics, he got to miss out on some of the fun colds that his big brothers brought home. So see, not all bad! And he's just following in his oldest brother's footsteps, right?

At our appointment, everyone was in agreement that tubes were the way to go for Graham. And thankfully they were able to get us in quickly for the surgery. So we went this morning. We had to be there at 5:45. I asked Jeremy when the sun comes up because it was DARK on our way in. Sometime while we were inside the sun did rise, so that's good.

The surgery went well. He was in and out super quick. He only got a little fussy about ten minutes before they took him back, but that was mostly due to being hungry. But we took care of that as soon as he was brought back from recovery – nursed and passed out. When we got home he proceeded to take a four hour nap. And is now back to crawling everywhere and getting into everything. So I would say he's fully recovered. Ha!
