Two years ago (and a few days), my Busy Little B had his ear tubes placed. He had lots of ear infections and could not pass a hearing test and the ENT found he pretty much always had fluid trapped in his ears. The tubes went in and he finally passed a hearing test! His speech grew by leaps and bounds (although he is still behind). We were told to expect the tubes to stay in for six months to a year but you know my kids--they are rule breakers ;)
B sees the ENT every six months and at our last visit, one tube was nearly out. This time around, that tube is completely gone and there is no sign of fluid trapped in there. The other tube is still in place and open but looks like it is working its way out. Our ENT thinks maybe in six months it might be out and we can evaluate whether the fluid is staying out or if B needs a new set.
In a few days, B has his next neurology appointment and we find out the results of his MRI. After Izzy's MRI results, I must admit I am nervous to see what's going on in B's brain.
