I finally got a referral from the Pediatrician to take Landon to the Ear, Nose, and Throat Doc. I guess the 5 ear infections that he's had in the last 8 months finally proved that it was warranted.
I don't know what to expect, but I'm glad that we're hopefully heading down a road that will give him some relief. The poor kid is such a trooper when he's sick. He never runs a fever and barely complains. The only two signs I have that he's sick are that he gets a runny nose, and he stops eating. Thank goodness for that though, because otherwise, I wouldn't have a clue.
I'm really concerned that all of these problems may interfere with his speech development since the ear infections are affecting his hearing. We have a neighbor who's little guy sounds almost like he's deaf when he speaks. It's so hard to understand him because he barely uses any consonants. He's a smart kid, but was plagued with numerous ear infections until he got tubes when he was two years old. His speech is progressively getting better, but I just don't want to do that to Landon. Colin was speaking VERY well by the time he was two. One of his favorite word was "volkswagon". He freaked out his Doctor at his two year check up by showing him his favorite yellow car which was a volkswagon and telling him all about it.
So, anyway. I'm guessing that they will probably recommend tubes. I know that in the long run, it will be what's best, but it scares the HELL out of me that they will have to put my baby under general anesthesia.
I'll update with the verdict tomorrow. We have a 1:45 appointment.
Everything with the house it going GREAT! We're waiting on the final "stuff" for the Home equity loan, but the loan for the new house is in place, we just have to send the signed paperwork back tomorrow. Kelly is heading to San Fransisco on Sunday for CPE training, so we're going to have to get Power of Attorny set up so I can sign for him at the Home Equity loan closing Tuesday of next week.
I never realized that you had to have a closing for a home equity loan. I guess it makes sense though. since it's technically a second mortgage. Live and learn right?
Fun, fun. Like I know ANYTHING about all of that. My CPA Husband is the finance guy in this family (duh!). I'm glad to do it, I just hope we don't run in to any problems. We'll just have to "conference" Kelly in during the closing if we can.
So, that's my exciting life now! I just can't wait to get in to our new home!!
17 days and counting! Woo HOO!
