Ears Update

We went and saw Dr. Schulte our ENT last week and he was very impressed with Jaxson’s hearing loss.  He said that if that was him or me, we would be wanting hearing aids.  The good news is that he said his hearing will be restored immediately when he makes the cut in his eardrum and cleans out all of the fluid.  He is also going to take out his adenoids.  The adenoids are like tonsils but they are located in the back of the nose.  They can put pressure on the eustachian tube at times, which contributes to the fluid being caught in his ears, which leads to the ear infections and hearing loss.  He is pretty confident that this will be his last set of tubes. . . let’s hope 🙂 So his surgery is scheduled for July 3rd.  Just in time to hear the fireworks 🙂

    Hey, Jaxson and I will be having surgery at the same time! I think we both will need jello for the recovery period 🙂
