Here is an update about Jonah's ear issues, detailed here.
Well, after waiting weeks and weeks to the surgeon in Atlanta, then 2 months for the actual surgery, The cholesteatoma was finally removed a couple of weeks ago. I forgot to post an update (I know, you're SO surprised, based on how often I've been posting lately;))
The surgery went really well. Jonah was really brave, and the Dr. was able to remove all the cholesteatoma, and there was no lasting effects. No facial paralysis, and the inner ear bones weren't eroded too much so she didn't have to remove them. Such great news!
|Waiting to be taken back. He got this adorable bear from his Grandma and they gave the bear a little hospital gown too.|
|Luckily, the next morning he was able to eat, and these adorable clown doctors came and sang him some songs and tried to cheer him up. It didn't really work, but after they left he said that he really liked the songs.|
|We've been doing a lot of baking, coloring, movie watching, and game playing.|
We went to his first follow up appointment yesterday and found out he actually has an ear infection in his OTHER ear! This explains why he has been such an awful listener, he can't hear out of either ear. I won't lie, it's really been trying my patience, but at least now I know it's because he can't hear me, I'm feeling a lot more understanding.
Thanks for all your well wishes and prayers, it just couldn't have gone better!
