So, sweet Blakey has gotten a nasty cold. He's been kind of congested for awhile, but the last 3 days were rough. You know, the no sleeping, no eating, really fussy, drooling like crazy (2 new teeth coming up). Same old, same old with him! I've been watching his ears, waiting for them to drain. I've seen nothing! I called the pediatrician and they told me I needed to talk to the ENT, the tubes should be draining. Because if he did have an ear infection and the tube wasn't draining, then it was probably blocked and not working. So we did, in the midst of not having phone service again this weekend, speak with the ENT and he said Blakey needed to be seen at the pediatricians office on Sunday and if it was truly a blocked tube, we needed to be at the ENT Monday morning.
Needless to say, I was very discouraged. We knew this was a possibility, but I guess we were just hoping and praying Blakey wouldn't have to deal with it. Anyway, after seeing doc on Sunday and the wonderful news that the ear tubes are clean, in place and working....we have successfully made it through our first cold without antibiotics or an ear infection! And despite, the not eating, not sleeping well, drooling baby I have...this is one happy Momma!!
