Just wanted to pop in and say that all is good! We are home and Grant is his normal delightful and spunky self. Everything went perfect minus the surgeon being 30 minutes late (because the darn secretary failed to tell her that she moved us to 7:30). GRRRR.
Turned out he had the likes of glue ear...a very thick fluid in the inner ear. Its unlikely to leave on its own anytime soon...so I feel like we did indeed do the right thing by having the ear tube placement. More on all of this later. I need to go change a poopy diaper for now!
Thanks for your support during this stressful time!
