Mini queen’s been having a bit of a rough week. She’s been fussy, not sleeping, mucus-y, and feverish. Another double ear infection!
This now marks the 4th or 5th time she’s had an ear infection in the past year. It just breaks my heart to see her wriggle around in pain. Seasoned mommy that I am, I’ve never had to go through this. I honestly can’t recall either of the mini monsters ever having an ear infection, although I’m sure there has to be one thrown in there somewhere.
Honor’s amazing Doctor’s, who I adore, have now referred us to an ear nose and throat specialist who’s going to take a better look at my mini queen and let us know if tubes are the best thing for her.
Even though I’m assured that it’s not a big deal, and probably the most common procedure preformed, I have to tell you, I’m tearing up at the thought of her having to go through with it! As I’m sure all moms in my position have done.
Yes, I know it’ll be for the best, if it’s decided that that’s what’s best for her and yes, I know it’ll prevent future ear infections and pain, but that deep unrelenting fear that only a parent can feel creeps up on me and I’m defenseless against it.
In the mean time though, I’m enjoying the extra cuddle session my one and only girl is allowing me to have with her, no matter how brief.
Have any of you been in my position? Any words of wisdom, advice or comfort?
