Evie had tubes put in her ears in September 2007 and we went for a check up on Christmas Eve 2008 and discovered that both tubes have fallen out and her ears are once again filled with fluid. The ENT prescribed a second round of antibiotics and we went for another check up today only to discover that the fluid is still there and her hearing is really bad in the left ear and only pretty bad in the right ear. The doctor ordered x-rays and my sweet girl cooperated like a champ - not even a whimper or any hesitation. The x-rays revealed that her sinuses are completely filled with fluid. The doctor recommended replacing the tubes, removing her adenoids, and flushing the sinuses. So, we are scheduled for surgery next Thursday. Poor baby girl. And she is such a trooper about everything!
George and I also went for his second state-ordered PKU test where they prick his heel and bleed him onto a piece of paper. I hate this test! I know it is to check his health, but damn, it kills me to watch them hurt my baby. They pricked Evie's heel three times! By the end, I was crying too. It wasn't that bad with George, but he did cry all the way home.
