Can you hear me now???

I had to give him kisses before he went under.
They made him change out of his favorite batman pjs so that he could wear their "cool" hospital garb.

After almost a year solid of ear infections, Parker's pediatrician finally recommended that he get tubes put in his ears. We had a couple weeks worth of appointments with the ENT and the Audiologist before we could be set up for the surgery. The apt with the Audiologist showed that he has hearing loss in his left ear. We are hoping that by putting the tubes in, he will regain all of that hearing. On Monday, November 30, we went in to the surgery center for his procedure. The actual surgery only took (literally) 5-10 minutes and he was awake very shortly after that. We were able to head home around 9:00 in the morning and I just needed to keep an eye on him throughout the day. He was in pretty good spirits and only complained a couple of times that his ears hurt. He was back at school on Tuesday and says that his ears feel great! I'm hoping this takes care of the problem. Anyway, here are some pictures of Parks at the hospital.
