I took Alanna to the E.N.T doctor yesterday. He took one look in her ears and said that she had lots of fluid. I counted 6 ear infections last year and he said that they only usually look for 3 or 4 in a 6 month span. Alanna's results is that she is hearing about 25-30 decibels under were she should be and he said that would be equal to an adult putting ear plugs in our ears and someone talking low to us..That's why Alanna has a hard time pronouncing her words, she can barely hear us..She does more syllables when we ask her to repeat something. That was because she couldn't understand. In a way I am so happy that we caught this early, but then again I am so nervous for my baby to be put to sleep and have surgery.
I read in the information packet yesterday that the results are usually right away. Hopefully by Christmas, I will have a little chatter box. Her surgery is scheduled for December 7. Please pray for us.
