I should have known that today was going to be crazy when Son missed the bus. I had a hard time waking him up but that is not unusual for a Monday when he has been at his Dads'. But next thing I know, its 7:50 and he still doesn't have shoes on. And the bus was early. I dropped him off at a different bus stop and he got to school on time.
Work was uneventful, thank goodness! And I left at noon because Son had an appointment with an ear specialist. We went to the appointment and registered. He went with the Audiologist for his hearing test. When they came back out, she told me that his hearing was much worse than it was 6 weeks ago. Wonderful. She couldn't get his either of his ear drums to move and they were curved inward still. Ok. So we have to see what the Dr says to do to fix this.
Get in to see the Dr and he is concerned because there is fluid in there that is keeping the ear drums from moving. But there is no infection! Woo ho. Dr. thinks that the best way to fix this is to put tubes in. Again. For the THIRD time.
Dr is booked into November but he thinks this needs to be taken care of as soon as possible. So he thinks we need to have one of the partners take care of this in October. Ok. You are the head of ENT at one of the best children's hospitals around. I will do as you recommend. Now I have to tell Son's father.
Then after we leave the Drs, we sit in traffic getting home. Wilmington at that time of day is horrible to try and move through. Son was scheduled for soccer pictures at 6:30. No time for dinner or homework. Son has enough time to get changed into his uniform and jump back in the car.
On the way home, we stop at Hudocks Custard Stand for take out. Son got a bellybuster and to console myself after the stress of the day, I got a hot fudge sundae!! A pretty good end to a stressful day.
