Emmerson JacksonMy 21-month-old daughter, Emmerson Jackson, had tubes placed in her ears last Tuesday by Dr. Albert. We cannot say enough good things about our experience.
This past Friday, Austin was admitted to Akron Children’s Hospital for ear tube surgery. Since starting preschool in June, Austin has had frequent colds and persistent fluid on his ear. We tried several rounds of antibiotics/nose sprays but nothing cleared up the fluid.
We’ve had some small steps for our little man over the past few months. During our physical therapy visit on Jan. 26 Jordan took his first steps while using his walker all by his big boy self.
What happens when ear tubes fall out or move? When should they fall out? What if there’s mucus, blood or other drainage and leakage issues?
Last week we were faced with our first surgery for Jordan since his back closure and the insertion of his vp shunt in his little head that leads to his stomach cavity. After our visit with Dr. Anton Milo (Jordan’s ear, nose and throat doctor), he suggested removing Jordan’s adenoid and placing tubes in his sweet little ears.
We followed 20-month-old Jordan Pollock on Feb. 13, 2013, during his surgery to insert ear tubes and remove his adenoid.
