Thursday

Thursday of this week is a big day in the Lawson household! Eisley is going to have tubes put in her ears! This has been a long time coming. She has been treated 8 times in 2009 for ear infections-- 7 of those 8 times were double ear infections.

Eisley apparently has really tiny ear canals, thanks no doubt to her mommy's genetics (sorry, kiddo!). These tiny ear canals don't allow her ears to drain very well, so any time she is teething, has a cold, or anything else that would cause a runny nose, that fluid just builds up, causing an infection.

Looking forward to getting some relief for that girl. Ear infections are miserable! I grew up getting a lot of ear infections. I am glad for the invention of the tubes and their availability to us now for Eisley. I think it is the best choice for her. I just can't bear the thought of her going through another winter with back to back ear infections. It was miserable for all of us last winter. And she's already had two ear infections in the past month!

So Thursday morning first thing she'll go in for the procedure. It should be pretty short- 10 minutes or so, and we'll be home within an hour or two of the procedure probably! Keep her in your prayers-- the only thing is that she has to be fever-free for the procedure. So pray she doesn't get another ear infection before then!

It will be great to avoid future ear infections. The procedure will probably be harder on Mom and Dad than Eisley. Hoping all goes well. Janey Mc
