Hi Amber,
I know I e-mailed you on this privately and I hope you got the e-mail.

I also hope you're planning to take your child for at least a second opnion to see if there are other methods to test his ears and give you some feedback. I think this would be prudent before making any decisions.

As I said, if tubes are needed they can be a real help, but first you have to see if they are needed and make sure you're with a great surgeon. Bottom line is that you need to feel comfortable with the decision and that doesn't sound like it will happen until you get at least one more opnion.

Keep me posted,
