Between doctors and song
Hello! I wish this post contained something happy to talk about, but it is other wise. I have not been able to post anything lately because we have been into a lot of doctor appointments and hospitals. it is a difficult time for our little family, our child Sofia seems to have hearing problems. We started noticing that she was having ear pain since she touches her ears constantly. We took her to her pediatrician a long time ago, but he said it was nothing. But the cries and ear touching continued until the pain caused Sofia to wake up in the middle of the night constantly. I did not know what to do. Sofia's great-grandmother told us to take her into the same otorrinolaringologist as they had taken her grand-kids. We did so on Tuesday and that kind doctor removed a lot of old earwax that had solidified inside my baby's ear canal. It was too inside to remove with an q-tip, so he used a long needle. He kept removing this brown looking thing from my baby's ear, until it was clean. The doctor said that that old earwax was almost a year old and was causing her pain and probably blocked 25% of the noise out of her ear. She should hear us better now and maybe even start talking. That day, we got home exhausted, but relieved. Our baby was not in pain anymore. But now there are many tests to be made, many more visits to the doctors. There is a big chance she might have a hearing problem, but we cannot know for sure until they run more tests. For now we are grateful that she hears better, and her ears don't hurt her anymore. She loves listening to music and singing, so im sure she is not completely deaf. I'm placing everything in God's hands, as always and in my heart I know everything will be all right.
But for now, no craft, no art. But as soon as things settle I will be inspired again to create.
