Ear update

Pin It We had our ENT appointment this morning and Lexi's right ear is still blocked. They think that her right tube is clogged with .... scab? That's what they said, yea I know Gross!! But anyway, at this point we have to sit back and wait. They say if she gets drainage, it will either help loosen the scab and help it come out so the fluid can drain or it will get stuck and cause an infection. If it causes infection they will have to go in and redo the surgery on that ear. We have faith that it will not happen that way. We are told that her hearing is still not good in that ear, just like any ear would not work well if it was plugged, however her actual ear has no problem and will hear just fine once all the crud is cleared out of it. I am making a point of talking to her on her left side now so that she hears things the right way. She goes to the doctor without a tear in sight now!!! Yep, she just played and was her super happy self the entire visit.
Here are some photos of us enjoying the wonderful weather her in AZ. We are expecting rain this weekend but I'm sure it will be sunny again by Monday. We have some visitors coming from Coooooold Minnesota on Friday so we need the sun to be shining bright again by then!

Bless her little heart! Hoping that ear heals quickly. It was 70 degrees in Pennsylvania today. It will probably be back in the 30's tomorrow!! Blessings

Joshua just got the same report. In fact, the very same thing is happening with one of his tubes. The ENT specialist wants me to put olive oil in that ear twice a day for 1 month. This will soften, loosena and hopefully allow that scab to fall off. He tried to remove it in the office but it was very painful for Josh. BTW there is so much snow here I can't see my neighbours house acroos the street.
