Tubes for Clay

Some of you know how much Clay has been suffering with ear infections lately. Since the middle of April he has been battling a nasty infection over and over again. He has been on the strongest antibiotic for most of these past two months, and even that doesn't help much. He is normally such a happy baby, but this has put a little damper on his sweet personality. Last Thursday was finally the day for him to get tubes in his ears. He has been happier since, but still a little fussy at night. I have talked to the doctor's office and they are confident that it would not be his ears. Maybe teething? Or, they say, it takes a little bit to get used to the change in hearing, etc. Anyway, here are some cute pictures of our little patient...

What! Clay is running around. I swear he could barely crawl around. Poor Clay, and Poor mommy for having his ears get that bad for tubes. Hopefully he will be feeling better.

I can't believe how much Clay is looking like Spencer! He is growing up so fast. I hope the tubes are a success. It must be nice to put a stop to all those ear infections.

Cute!! I feel sorry for Clay, it is tough to do things like that.

I just caught up on your blog. I was fortunate, none of my kids had to have tubes. I hear from others that it does make a big difference. I emphathize with the broken roll dish. I've done that! What a mess. Jay also left a glass 9X13 on the top of the car and drove off. What a cute family. You guys are doing such a great job!
