After multiple visits to the Audiologist and ENT we've decided that Crew needs tubes in his ears, a tonsillectomy, and an adenoidectomy (sp?). The audiologist will also do an ABR test during surgery to get an updated audiogram. His recent hearing test results have shown a dramatic decrease in his ability to hear. We are hoping its a temporary result of the negative pressure in his ears and not a permanent progressive hearing loss. My prayer is that the ABR results will show that everything is okay.
Crew's tonsils are huge. When I look in there I wonder how he can even swallow. He is mainly breathing through his mouth. He snores and is often tired.
H had his tonsils out when he was 2 and he recovered very quickly. Hopefully Crew will sail through this as well but with the additional tube surgery and other health issues we deal with I'm a bit nervous. I'm waiting for the hospital to call me back with a surgery date.
Update: Surgery is scheduled for April 6th. Good bye Spring Break:(
