Aaron is getting them on Thursday. Not because of chronic ear infections but because he has mild to moderate hearing loss in both his ears from fluid that is not draining.
I'm a bit anxious, even though I know it's very common. Plus his ENT wants no water in his ears while the tubes are in, so I'm going to have to figure out how to get him to let me put cotton balls or ear plugs in his ears during bath time.
The cost is another annoyance but we haven't dipped into our FSA this year, so it will be covered. But how could I live with myself if I didn't do this? I mean his hearing loss is completely reversible and he DOES have a speech delay. No brainer. But still anesthesia is anesthesia. sigh.
