get well soon

Wow, December 1st already. All that comes to mind is "where did the past couple of months go"? As I have mentioned we have been sick here in the King house. One person will get better and another person will wake up coughing. Mainly its been Ben who is sick.
Starting back in October he wakes up all green and goopy, the dr puts him on an antibiotic and then 10 days later when the medicine is all gone he is sick again. He has been on antibiotic 3 times in 2 months and now he has no infection but still coughing and gaging and runny nose and fluid in his ears.
I have been talking with the ear dr that Alanna sees, and he recommended tubes for Ben's ears. We just have to get hm healthy for the surgery. So the dr today took some nose cultures (yuck) and sent them in for testing. Hopefully we can get to the bottom of this sickness. Poor Ben has not been himself lately, and I really miss the happy, sleep through the night baby I had a couple months ago.

  3. Bless his little heart!! I transcribe a lot of surgeries for babies with the tubes in the ears. It's a simple procedure and children younger than Ben undergo it so try not to worry. I know, I know...easier said than done! {{HUGS}}
