ENT Appointment

As some of you may or may not know, Blakely has been having chronic ear infections since she was 2 months old. After 19 months of getting ear infections, she was finally referred to an Ear, Nose, and Throat Doctor(she is 20 1/2 months old now). We had her appointment today and they DID recommend putting tubes in her ears. They said it will help relieve the pressure in her ears, get rid of some of the fluid build up, and that she might even start to hear better! I don't really think she has a problem with hearing though! Crazy thing is, while we were there they told us she has an ear infection right now. Thank the Lord it wasn't a double ear infection, as it is only in her right ear. They also recommended/told us that we need to get some custom ear plugs made for her ears, that she will use for baths and swimming from now on.

Her appointment is scheduled for the 20th of January! I hope this brings relief to our munchkin and less ear infections in the future! Keep your fingers crossed and her in your prayers!
