My brain is seriously lacking any amount of creativity lately. I think if I could figure out how to get to sleep sometime before 1am I might be a little better off, but seems with all that’s going on lately, I’ve got a bit of the old worry-wart insomnia.
First things, first: we had Cooper’s pre-op appointment this morning and he’s been cleared for surgery on Friday. Since his cold seems to have resolved itself and it didn’t turn into an ear infection I was starting to wonder if maybe I didn’t need to do the ear tubes. Glad I didn’t say anything because the pediatrician found that he had fluid behind both ear drums…clear, not infected, but fluid none-the-less. Last week at the ENT he only had fluid behind one ear. So now I’m totally back on the ear tube train and am NOT getting off. Especially because Justin has promised me IHOP breakfast after Cooper’s surgery (pending Cooper’s disposition afterwards). And if he’s not up for breakfast at IHOP, I will get it via carryout. Priorities, you know.
So what I’m wondering about now, all you ear tube initiated, is the “custom” ear plugs. Or ear plugs in general (i.e. the ones in the ear/eye care aisle). Give it to me…any and all of your thoughts, feelings, experiences, rants, tips, etc. I, uh, keep forgetting to ask the doctor, but I kinda trust all of you out there more than someone who’s going to charge me for something probably not covered by my less-than-stellar insurance (even if he’s a very very nice and kind and gentle man).
In other news, congrats to Holly and her mighty “Heffalumps & Woozles” team. She soundly kicked everyone’s butt in Fantasy Football this past weekend. Now that I figured out how to hit the “submit” button after moving someone onto my bench, I think I might do better for next week. Or probably not since I don’t know squat, but it’s been fun anyways!
