Update: Everything went very well today with Schaeffer's tubes. He did great and had no adverse reactions from the anesthesia. The ENT couldn't believe how quickly he recovered from the anesthesia just minutes after the surgery. That's my boy! The ENT also said, "Schaeffer's ears could not have been any worse, and actually they looked horrible!" But now with the fluid gone and the tubes in place, he should be hearing all sorts of things that he has missed before. We're giving him drops in his ears for five days to keep infection away so his ears can heal properly. Thanks for the prayers. The good Lord answered them all!!
Schaeffer is going tomorrow for his tubes. We have to be at the hospital by 6:15 a.m., and we hope to be home around 7:15 a.m. I'm praying for uncomplicated, quick, and effective!!
