Ear tubes ??


Mia had her 3 year check up today. She has gained 6 pound since we picked her up -yet still only weighs a little over 23 pounds. She is a tiny gal !

We have been watching her ears and as of today the pressure in her ears has gotten worse. Mia-Faith's doctor said that her ear pressure on the right is completely flat and "not it's that great" on the left SO we are now talking ear tubes.

We will find out December 11th. I wonder if this may be part of her speech delay....



Happy Thanksgiving everyone !

Awww, poor girl! I am sure she will be thankful though when she gets them, it must be quite painful?
She is adorable, don't feel too bad about her being tiny, my son Jaden didn't even break thirty pounds until he was about 5! And now at eight he is only 45 pounds!

Since Jensen had his ear tubes put in he had not had any problems with fluid. He seems to be hearing just fine.

I hope all goes well!

Mia always looks so happy in every picture and she has a beautiful smile:)

Mia is such a beautiful petite little girl!
Sorry about her ear problems...poor thing, must be painful.Sure hope if she has to have ear tubes that they will help with her speech delay.

It very well may be a factor in her speech delay. We have had our fair share of trouble. My oldest is on her third set of tubes and my youngest on her second.

The procedure will be easy and quick. Nothing major at all...

Good luck!
