Update #1: Garrett's ENT agreed with his pediatrician & tubes are set for May 11th - both ears. Hopefully this will solve all our problems (Ha wishful thinking!). We have way too many problems; like Garrett won't eat & just screams through feedings, stays up all night now SCREAMING all night(....did I mention all night?) and he still throws up like a champ. He has recently gotten a little attitude. You never think your baby will be attitude-y....no, not yours....maybe someone else's but not yours! Well...he has resorted to pitching fits & yelling at us at any opportunity. The kid is not spoiled...he's been in daycare since 2 months old. I don't get it. I have no clue what to do! Anyway who cares cuz like I said - the tubes are going to solve all of our problems!
Update #2: My mom's ENT went out of town so she saw another guy at the same practice. Thank God. He was shocked that all of the ENTs she has gone to over the years have not ordered a catscan to check her mastoid bone to find in looking for the origination of the infection that caused the meningitis. So he did. Turns out she has 2 masses in her mastoid bone that are the cause of the infection & the cause of the fluid that leaks out of her ear onto her face. She has had the infection for years the doc said...hence she has had jacked up ears for years. Good news - her ears have hope! Bad news - she has to have surgery to get rid of her infection. It is a little tricky because the mastoid bone is deep inside behind the ear near the brain, so her ENT told her that a special neurological surgeon has to do it. She will go see the surgeon on Tuesday.
The other day Garrett climbed all the way up Nana's stairs with no problem. I thought that was pretty cool, but was later corrected by a friend. Turns out all kids who know how to crawl can go up stairs...it's an inherent ability they have. She said it was even on the news. Doh - who's the stupid one now? It's me.
Speaking of the yelling...Garrett is screaming at us from his room for about the 10th time in 2 hours. Gotta run! So tired.
P.S. I'm not a big fan of crying it out & I don't do it, but if anyone has any success stories...please share. I'm getting desperate! We need sleep!
