Otitis Media Haiku

wear hospital gown
mommy will be by your side
go to sleep baby

ears will be better
tubes keep ears clear, no fluid
build-up behind drum

Audrey woke up fine
stretched arms, asked for food and juice
did a little dance

not so Elliot
woke up crying and shaking
needed to be held

“Whoa” Elliot said
after flushing the toilet
worried, what went down?

“Mom,” he says to me
“There was junk in my ear. Now
the toilet is loud.”

Phew, no Lego flushed
hearing restored to my son
everyone happy

pictures tomorrow
if my WordPress likes me more
than it does right now

    Glad to hear everything went well. I never had to go through the ear traumas, thank goodness, but they always seem so awful. Here’s to a winter with no ear infections. :)

    Whoa…what went down?

    That was a fantastic line. Stanza. Bit o’ haiku.

    glad it all went well. it is always scary when a child has any sort of surgery. i cried when my kids — both of them — got tubes. and what a difference it made for both of them!
