ENT

Okay, the real news about the ENT visit (booger-eating aside), was that he determined that Brad has "a lot" of fluid in his ears, that his tonsils are "huge," and that he wants Brad on Omnicef and Veramyst for three weeks (three weeks!) before he checks him again.

Usually doctors are very careful with what they say, but the ENT used the word "huge" three times in reference to Brad's tonsils. I'm thinking that's not a good thing. And he said the fluid may be affecting Brad's hearing.

So if the Omnicef and Veramyst don't clear all this up, we're probably looking at a T&A (no, all you Chorus Line fans, it's not that, it's a tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy--sheesh!). Both Daddy and Grandma had their tonsils out, so it may be a fait accompli. We'll see.
