Here We Go Again

Look at this happy face.

She is always a ray of sunshine, but the poor thing has been suffering from fluid in her ears -- she has actually suffered a temporary hearing loss because of it.

So...we finally got to see the specialist today and the verdict was another set of tubes.

I hate the idea of her having surgery again, but at the same time, I know it will be such a relief to her.

She has been complaining that it  hurts or that she can hear her own voice in her ears -- a little katie echo.

Not to mention, because she can't hear...she's the loudest girl around -- by a lot.

So...April 8. We'll keep you posted.

Has she been tested for allergies? I know my friend's daughter has fluid in her ears all the time and has hearing problems because of it and they recently did allergy testing on her - and she's majorly allergic to a lot of things (mold, cat dander, nuts, etc.) so she'll be starting steroid shots soon and they told her that would help a lot with the fluid in her ears..

Oh my gosh, that smile is just too sweet! It's so hard to see little ones going through health issues, but it's always amazing to me how well they take it. It makes me understand a little better when Jesus said to be as a little child. I hope the surgery goes well.

Oh, dear! Good luck to Katie (and you) with it all. I had tubes at age 7 -- pretty old -- but definitely worth the extra effort to stop all of the pains and damage to my ears. I don't know if it affected my hearing, but maybe people are just too nice to tell me I am way too loud!

I hope it works this time around. Krissia also had to have two sets of tubes; the second time was the charm!
