PE Tubes

The girls went in for their PE tubes today. Between the two of them we experienced 12 ear infections between three & eight months old. For the past month Dr. J has had them on a maintenance antiobiotic to prevent any infections before the surgery. The surgeon removed fluid from both girls ears before the tubes were inserted. We were concerned about the girls receiving GA but they came through that ok and the only issue we really dealt with was the freak out when they woke up afterwards. I'd been warned about this by a co-worker but I don't think you can fully prepare for it, both girls screamed and cried and were in and out of it for about an hour straight. We brought them home and they napped for a couple hours and they were better when they woke up but generally cranky for the rest of the day. It made for a long day but we are happy with the decision we made to get tubes for the girls. We are hoping for no more infections!!!!
