    First of all.. I am crazy jealous about the cleaning service. What? I need that in my life. I feel like my son’s nose has been running since December *sigh* if its not one thing.. its another. My nephew had to get tubes because of the reoccurring infection *sad face* good luck with whatever you decide to do.

    Hi, first time reader…nice place you got here.

    About Pookah & his ear infections. My eldest son, Eeny, now 8, had frequent ear infections as an infant, toddler, preschooler. I breast fed this child for 2+ years. (Had to pry him off the nipple with a shoe horn almost.) He was prone to ear infections anyway. It wasn’t until I noticed that Eeny didn’t have the vocabulary ALL his peers had, even the kids that were “slow talkers.” By this time, I’d learned he had a significant hearing loss as a result. He’s still in speech & language, doing much better, but it was the most rough during his transitional toddler to preschool years when he was very aggressive with us because he could not communicate with us. I taught him ASL to help bridge the gap in those early years, and the aggression lessened, then stopped.

    As much as I was afraid of the surgery to have tubes placed in Eeny’s ears, it was the best thing I did. Surgeries on a small child are hard to accept, but put on the other hat, the Nurse Manager hat. If Pookah were not Pookah, but Malachi, or Edward, or some other woman’s baby with the same history, would the diagnosis & suggested treatment still make sense? Do what you have to do. Pookah will be ok, he’s a tough guy cuz he’s gotta tough mom.

    Then, you can put your Mom hat back on the day of surgery.
    I hope this is helpful.

    He is absolutely adorable!! Sounds like you had a VERY random-thoughts Tuesday haha. I wish I had a cleaning service! And I can not for the life of me understand the ‘end of the world’ people last week. My fiance got to talking to someone on the subway who stopped paying all of his bills and threw out all of his clothes. I’m pretty sure that his Sunday sucked without clean underwear or a roof over his head haha.
