We were diagnosed with the latest ear infection on Monday. And at last, we gave in and have scheduled to do the tubes this coming Thursday.

LO is 17 months. I can no longer keep track of how many ear infections we had. Has to be between 12-15+ since late January. (we were completely clear before he turned 1)

Any tips / advice / success / horror stories to share, so I can pay attention to? I asked my doc if there were any specific things I need to watch for and need to call them post-op, he said "massive amount of blood drainage", and "trust me, you'll know". But what about extreme fussiness? restlessness? drainage? crying? what is considered normal and what's not? And what about baths? shampooing? pools? water spray parks?

Any tips / advice / sharing / prayers / warm healing thoughts are welcomed.
