C finally got his ear tubes on 4/23. Last time we were scheduled, he got pneumonia and we had to cancel. This time, he got a cold about 3 days after ear tubes. Last night was particularly stressful on a respiratory level. We used his inhaler frequently to help get his respirations back under control. He's doing better today, but did spike a fever at the end of his school day.
Hopefully these ear tubes usher in a new antibiotic free era. Before tubes, we were having an ear infection on average once every 4-6 weeks. Sometimes more frequently. We're looking forward to a few less doctor's visits (though we do love our docs :) ).
