Monday's ENT Appointment

As you will see in these pictures Lucas is trying so hard to crawl and he can "scoot" around on his bottom now... in other words, he has discovered he can get into almost everything he wants!

Lucas had his ENT appointment with Dr. Novelly in Fayetteville this morning. He definitely agreed that Lucas needed ear tubes to help with the drainage issues in his little ears. Even with the antibiotics that he is on, the infection looks better but there was still lots of fluid present in both ears.... meaning there is a good chance he will get another infection as soon as he goes off his antibiotic this week. :o( We opted for the first available date for the surgery... next Thursday October 8th at Scottish Rite Hospital. It will be a minor procedure... only mask anesthesia (light sleep)... I will get to be with him until he falls asleep.... the procedure will only take a few minutes and he should be back to feeling himself by that evening. David and I both have a few butterflies, but ultimately we are happy that relief is in sight. Our little sweetie has had such an ordeal with these infections... we are ready to put them behind us!
