    great news, king. i'll never forget when the oldest little shockey had his first fever. i freaked. when it broke, i whispered to him that he'd better not ever get much sicker than this, 'cause pops couldn't handle it.

    almost 17 years, two brothers, a broken wrist and many stitches later, i can handle the minor stuff. surgery would freak me, too. they're always our babies -- which helps me understand mom/dad of shockey much better.

    One thing you can take comfort in, King, is hospitals are VERY careful and thorough when doing surgery on children. I've been in and out of ERs and OR's my whole life, and that's one thing I've observed everywhere across the country.

    So rest in the knowledge that your baby is getting the ultimate attention and care.

    Hope that helps.

    Glad the docs were able to take care of him. I remember my baby brother had earache problems. The doc kept sending him home till his eardrums burst and he didn't have an earache anymore. Imagine that. Luckily I don't think he has any hearing impairment.

    As an aside, if your kid ever suffers a scarring-type injury such as a facial cut, and you go to the emergency room, wait for a pediatric plastic surgeon to stitch it up. The wound can be covered for a day or more if you have to wait that long.
    Good luck with the ear tubes, it's worth it to end the infections.
