Good news on the hearing front: We met with out ear-nose-throat dude on Monday, and he green-lighted us for outpatient surgery to put in hearing tubes. We should get a date for the operation within the next 10 days. At the same time, the doc -- a gregarious guy with frosted hair and themed ties -- may trim some of her larnyx to help with her laryngomalacia.
There's no guarantee he can get the tubes in. Her ear canals are tiny. But the doc is optimistic. These surgeries are his bread and butter and he's only had one that wasn't a success. So we're cautiously optimistic. It's wonderful to finally be moving on this front and we'll be so delighted for the day when she can hear us tell her how much we love her.
