Jesse did really well with his ear tube procedure. He cried for quite awhile after the surgery while he was coming out of anesthesia, but after a good snack and a good nap, he was back to normal.
The doctor said he had quite a bit of fluid behind both ear drums, so it’s a very good thing we had the procedure done. For the last couple days, he has had a lot of drainage from both ears, so we can tell the tubes are doing their job. In a couple weeks, Jesse will be feeling and hearing better than ever.
Speaking of hearing …. Matthew’s hearing test on Tuesday was still “equivocal,” meaning the doctors still can’t really tell us how well he hears. He will go in for a specialized hearing test in January, where the doctors give him enough anesthesia to go to sleep, then measure his brain wave response to sound. It’s the only way to be sure he is hearing well, although I dread more anesthesia for our little guy.
Thanks for the prayers, everyone! And, Merry Christmas!
