Ear Tube Surgery

December 21, 2006

edited-038.jpgLucas had tubes put in his ears this morning! We had to be there pretty early, so we got him up right before it was time to leave, changed his diaper, and left. He didn’t even notice that he had skipped breakfast! They would not let me stay with him until he was asleep, but he was brave and didn’t cry when the nurses took him away! They did allow him to take his two doggies with him 🙂

In about 10 minutes the Dr. came out and said he was done. It didn’t take long at all! He was in recovery for longer than it took to do the surgery. When we were allowed to go see him once he woke up, he was VERY UPSET! Even after we were with him, he was still sobbing, kicking, and pretty much inconsolable! He kept pointing to the door b/c he wanted to get the heck out of there!! It took two of us to get him strapped in his carseat.

By the time we got home, he started to calm down. Once he had some breakfast, he felt much better, and was up running around pushing his dump truck. All the kicking and screaming must have wore him out b/c he took a 2 hour nap. Now he’s back to normal, being active and playing as usual 🙂


Rough Day!

December 12, 2006

Lucas has been on a new antibiotic since last Tuesday. It is supposed to be the best one available. Well, yesterday, he started acting fussy and congested again. Today he had his 18 month check up with the doctor, who said his ears are still infected and the antibiotic did not work. He cannot have his surgery unless his ears are cleared up. So the only next alternative is to give him antibiotic injections. He has to get them once a day for three days. We went back this afternoon to get the shot, and he got 1 in each leg. After the third day, he will start taking a medicine at bedtime that is supposed to prevent the infections. Hopefully all of this will keep his ears cleared up until next Thursday. We spent a total of 3 1/2 hours at the doctor’s office today!

On a positive note, the doctor said Lucas is talking at or above the average for boys his age 🙂 and he weighs 23lb and is 33 inches tall!


Naughty Boy!

Lucas  usually has been on the receiving end of biting at daycare, but yesterday he bit a kid on the finger because he wanted their toy! I asked him if he was going to do it again, and he said No, so hopefully he won’t!
