More prayers needed

Sorry to have been so MIA, our statewide music teacher convention is this week/weekend so I have been very busy it seems.

D took Jack to the pedi today on our hunch, and he has his 5th ear infection in a row. We found out on ear infection #4 we think he is allergic to penicillin, so we will see an allergist on Monday. After today, she referred us to an ENT so Jack can have the surgery to have tubes put in his ears.

While the surgery has advanced a lot and is not nearly as bad as when David and I had it as children, please say a little prayer. We should know more on Monday, and the pedi thinks surgery might accelerate his talking/vocabulary gains.

As of yesterday, the boys are 23 months! One month till two! I'll post pics tomorrow!

Praying for you girlfriend and Mr. Jack. I never had tubes, my brother did though. It made a world of difference too. Hang in there!!!

Hope that everything goes well. It IS really neat to watch vocbulary and clearity of speech bloom after tubes. Good luck.

I will say the prayer that the surgery goes well! If you need any personal account of a mom of a kid with tubes, let me know--my niece had them put in maybe 5 months ago?

Praying for your sweet boy. My niece just had this last week and is doing beautifully. In fact she was fine shortly after surgery and great the next day!

I can't believe your boys are almost two. Love the new look of the blog (I've been MIA so sorry if it's been a while). I hope the surgery goes/went well!

Keeping Jack in our prayers for a successful surgery with a speedy recovery.
