He's Been Tubed

Master Keegan had his ear surgery this morning and we are home now recovering. He is full of energy and eager to eat while Tom and I dragging from being up so early. The procedure went quickly and they brought him right back to us. The general made him grumpy for about a half hour because he was disoriented. It turns out that despite the antibiotics he had an ear infection in his right ear. Maybe that explains the vomiting incident and the difficult bedtimes.
We went for a pre-surgery hearing test yesterday. The audiologist confirmed that Keegan has some hearing loss because of the fluid. We can expect big changes in his verbal abilities and probably also his balance when walking. Apparently they acclimate to the new sounds within twenty-four hours.
So we'll hang out here the rest of the day and maybe Keegan will be kind enough to nap and allow me to nap too. It is such a relief to have everything over with and to have him healthy.
