My son is just about to turn 2. Some back ground info:
His dad kicked us out of the house when he was 6 days old. I have lived with my parents up until I met Fiance and we got a place. I have supported my son 100%. His dad doesn’t pay child support (my lawyer is STILL trying to get it), doesn’t help with medical bills, and doesn’t help with daycare. If my son needs something, I take care of it. I miss work EVERY time he is sick, I take him to the Dr, I get him medicines, everything.
Well, he has really bad ear infections. Its getting to the point of at least 1 if not 2 a month, and some of them are so bad that they actually goo from his ears. He has always had ear infections, constantly. I took him to a Dr about it last year and they said they would put tubes in.
I wasn’t completely sold on the idea. The thought of putting him under for a surgery scared the crap around me (and still does). I also thought that MAYBE he would grow out of them because some kids do. Well he hasn’t. I’m worried that he is going to be behind in talking and stuff becuase of all his ear problems, so I think he needs tubes.
The problem is, his dad won’t agree. He wants to do it “his way” first, which is to do some chiropractic care thing. I don’t believe in it. I know some people swear by it, but its not my thing. I am totally 100% against it. I don’t believe in the practice to start with, and I really don’t want somebody messing with my childs body that way. Plus, all the stuff I have read on it, you have to do matinance and stuff.
While a surgery is scary, at least it would be done. Go in, have them put in, and that be it. I don’t want my baby boy to have to go through a bunch of stuff and continue to be miserable with ear infections.
So, his dad said we either do it his way or we will have to go to mediation (sit with lawyers and try to come to a conclussion). I am so upset about this because I am scared shitless that they will say to try his way first and if it doens’t work, to do tubes. I don’t want to take a chance on my son’s health, especially with a practice that I don’t believe in.
I could just cry. Part of me just wants to go to his ear Dr, make an appointment and just do tubes. Screw his dad! He doesn’t help anyways! But I know that isn’t right, so I just can’t do it.
Sorry, I am just SSSOOO upset about this and needed to talk about it. I cried all night and feel like I still could.
