Reagan gets tubes!

One of the many bonuses of living in Idaho Falls is that we live super close to a doctor . . . and one who loves my kids! And doesn't charge more than a hug and a kiss! It is seriously super handy to just be able to call Grandpa when my kids need help . . . or get ear infections.
When Reagan was first born, we were excited that she didn't have as many ear infections as Davis. Quickly, that became not the case any more. Reagan's main problem is that her ear infections never seem to clear up. And she usually gets a diaper rash from them as well.
At the end of 2015, Grandpa said that she was quickly becoming a tubes-worthy patient. I had him check to see if the infection had cleared early in January. Indeed, it had not. Instead of ANOTHER round of antibiotics, Grandpa said to call the doctor and get tubes put in, which he of course obliged to for his old partner.
So, I took Reagan to the hospital in the wee hours of morning, while Chris stayed home with a sleeping Davis. When we got back, we were both exhausted, and Davis had just woken up. It was a tiring day, but at least we got it done!

 I remembered from Davis getting tubes that they have a little wagon in pre-surgery to pull babies around in. It's the perfect thing for a confused and antsy baby who doesn't want to sit still in a room. She LOVED being pulled around by Mommy.
