A quickie update on the ear situation…it’s too soon to tell if the surgery was completely “successful” in eliminating the source of Nik’s constant ear flicking, thwacking, rubbing; call it what you will, it’s still happening pretty regularly. It could just be a habit now that we need to help him break.
There does seem to be a lot less actual pain —which is a very good thing! We’ve managed to make it through 48 hours without using any Tylenol or Advil. Let me tell you that is a major coup in this household! We used to go through a bottle of the stuff every other week!
Also, Nik has not woken in the middle of the night for a few nights either. Mommy likes that a lot! When Mommy’s well rested, Mommy is happy. And we all know the old saw, right? “If Mama ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy!” Right now, next to DisneyLand, this is the happiest place on Earth!
