Comfort and Joy

I will turn their mourning into gladness; I will
give them comfort and joy instead of sorrow.

Tubes for Miller

Yesterday morning we awoke at 5:30 for Miller's tube surgery. He has struggled with numerous ear infections and fluid constantly on his ears so the ENT felt like it was time. We are so thankful we had the surgery. The doctor said that his ears would never drain the fluid well and he had a pretty bad infection even now. He has had 5 infections in the last 6 weeks. I feel terrible we didn't do it sooner but we didn't want to put him through a procedure unless he really needed it.

He did pretty well waking up from surgery. We had heard some bad stories of uncontrollable crying but he did ok. He was a little fussy and groggy but ok if we held him. After about 45 minutes he was back to his old self.

We are praying this clears the fluid and infections.
