After 4 ear infections in 4 months (as long as he's been in daycare), Micah's pedi sent him to an ENT dr. His hearing test showed that his hearing isn't quite what it should be, and there's fluid in his ears, so they're recommending tubes. We're scheduled for next Friday. I know it's not a big deal, but I'm uneasy about this. The doctor threw out the comment, "Well, we can either keep plugging him with antibiotics, you can take him out of daycare or you can get him tubes." I already feel terrible sending my son to daycare so much, so that comment stung a lot. I feel like it's my fault that he keeps getting infections, because I work too much and he spends too much time at daycare. Woe is me.
Anyone have any experience with tubes? Do I just need to put my big girl panties on a deal with this?
