No More Ear Infections!

My little Peyton got tubes in his ears today! I am so happy and relieved we finally got them in. He has had 7 ear infections in 11 months. The doctor made us wait until he had 6 within a year, but while we were waitining for the surgery he got his 7th. He gets so grumpy when he gets the infections and looks so miserable. It'll be nice to see him back to him self and a happy baby again.

We took him in this morning at 8:30 to have the tubes put in. They said he couldn't eat after midnight, but because he wasn't feeling good he hadn't had anything to eat since 3:00 the previous day. He was super hungry this morning and so awnry and just our luck the doctor was running late so he was struggling! Once they finally took us back Peyton got really calm and let the doctors do what they wanted. Which was really weird because he HATES doctors. He freaks out anytime one comes near him. So we were all shocked. Once they were ready to take him back Peyton still stayed calm and we watched them take him down the hall and he was still very well behaved. It made it alot easier on me to give him up. Then 15 min later then told us he was done. They warned us that after kids wake up they are super mad and usually cry for a while because of the meds they give them to go to sleep, so they told us to be prepared to not be able to calm him down right away. When they brought him to us they told us we were lucky and they were surprised because he didn't cry at all. They said this was very uncommon. Even as we sat there he still did not cry. He did flip out once when he saw someone with a drink so we gave him his sippy cup and he was good. He was chocking himself because he was so hungry and he was drinking so fast, but once he was done he fell right back asleep. He has been in a great mood since and like the doctors said, he would act like nothing ever happened.
