Approximately, one year ago Slightly before Colston turned 5 months, Chris and I took it upon ourselves to bring him to an ENT to have his very troubled ears checked. He kept ear infections, - most of the time the antibiotics wouldn't even knock them out. When I brought him to the ENT, he had 5 ear infections, with-in a period of actually 2 months. (They didn't begin until he was 2 months) That day we scheduled his Tubal procedure, and went on about our business. The procedure went fine. Fast foward a year.
The last 12 months or so has been a complete NIGHTMARE with Colston's sinuses I.E.- Congestion, Runny nose, croupy cough, aesthma... You name it- He had it. We went to an allergist, had an allergy test done to for proper precaution, and you would know he was allergic to nothing! He was staying on antibiotics, steriods, Albuterol, Singulair, benedryl - and I Had just had enough of keeping my baby on all of these medications. So back to the ENT we went.
The aednoidectomy would too, be a simple surgery. However, this time, unlike the tubes, he would be intubated, and put under with general anesthesia. :(
Such a sport!
He was so swolen.
I was so proud of my baby and all that he conquered that day. It's the small stuff that makes us be so very thankful for the small stuff.
The rest of the afternoon he was great, and full of energy. Clearly the pain meds that were given helped him make it through the day. The following Friday and Saturday, were not fun days at all. You could tell he was in pain, didn't feel well and started running a low grade temp.
The things we do to make our babies happy!
