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.

Peanut never really had infections either but persistent fluid. She got tubes in June 2006. I hope the surgery goes well. It's still scary not matter how simple the procedure.

BTW, for some reason your posts aren't showing up on my google reader, so I haven't remembered to catch up on Rylie's birth stories. I did read one the other day and was going to post a comment and my computer crashed. Argh! I will try to get to them soon!
