ENT recap

LC and I took P to the ENT on Monday morning. She still has a ton of fluid behind her ear drum that's causing the ear drum to not vibrate like it should. Praise the Lord, her hearing hasn't been affected. The audiologist said she had to get louder with a few lower tones, but P is still hearing on a "normal" level.

The ENT looked into P's ears and made some sound that didn't sound good at all! Both of her ears are STILL infected after 20 days of antibiotics. He thinks that the fluid is never draining out of her ears... that the infection clears up, but the fluid stays there and then gets reinfected after a week or so. He said without a doubt P needed tubes! I'm so thankful he was direct with us.

Miss Priss goes in tomorrow morning for her out patient surgery. The ENT will drain all the gook (totally his words - love him!) from her ears and then insert the tubes. I told LC last night that as gross as it is, I'd love to see all the stuff that was in P's ears!

I'm so glad we were able to see the ENT and schedule surgery so quickly and that Miss P will FINALLY have some relief!

Yea! So glad this will all be behind you!
Your ENT sounds like ours... he's a ped ENT, totally used to talking to kids AND parents, so he uses words like gook, too.
GL tomorrow!!
