Today our daughter went in to have new tubes put in her ears and to have her adenoids removed. The poor thing has had trouble with her speech and is very hard to understand. We met with the school district speech pathologist and had her evaluated, and luckily that day she decided to talk really bad so she qualified for speech help and they also suggested a hearing test. The appointment was already made to see the ENT, so that wasn't a big deal. While at the ENT they said that both of her tubes were out and wanted to check for fluid, which was present behind the ear drum. She had just had an ear infection in November and was on two treatments of the heavy duty antibiotics so the Dr suggested getting new tubes put in and possibly removing the adenoids. We think she has probably had fluid in her ears for a long time which is why she is so difficult to understand, we are hoping the surgery clears up all of her ear problems.
Please pray that this solves the ear infection issues and that her speech greatly improves. She appears to be having a speedy recovery!
