Robbie's first set of ear tubes fell out in December. We had hoped that by that point, he would be able to get by without them. Unfortunately, not only did he end up with a couple of ear infections over the next few months, but he also failed his hearing exam a few months after that. At the time of his hearing test, he did have fluid in his ears (but no infection) and the thought was that it was keeping him from being able to hear well. It was also suggested that we could take his adenoid out at the same time, which might help. So we went for our 2nd set of tubes.

Getting sleepy now.
Can't even hold my head up.
And I'm out.
Back from surgery, not a happy boy. Waking up took about an hour.
We got through it okay. All dressed and ready for discharge.
Just waiting for our ride home. Done!
