I took Jack in to the ENT because he had a pretty bad ear infection that a. pushed one of his tubes out b. didn't respond to one round of ear drops c. apparently did respond to another round plus oral antibiotics, but he had an allergic reaction to said antibiotics.
So at the ENT he confirmed our fear: while the ear infection did clear up, there's a ton of fluid on the ear drum again and his hearing has been compromised in his right ear. (insert my husband's joke here: "what did you say?")
So we go back February 11th and if the fluid is still there, Jack will not only have surgery to have ear tube set #2 placed, he will also have his adenoids out.
I am not stoked at all, but the idea of hearing loss isn't a grand one either. I'll let you know what we find out.
