Another Ear Tube Surgery
Rylie never had an ear infection as an infant or toddler, but she would sometimes get fluid in her ears when she had a cold. In April 2006, she got tubes put in for the first time. Immediatley after getting tubes her speech exploded and she passed her hearing test with flying colors! Her last hearing test was done last January and she passed. Last month she got her first ear infection ever and then another one a week later. I was starting to wonder if she was having some trouble hearing. I noticed she wasn't making any improvements in her speech. So, last night I took her to her ENT appointment. The ENT said Rylie has fluid in her ears and needs new tubes. Surgery will be next Tuesday. It is a quick and simple procedure, but I am still nervous.
