Can You Hear Me Now?

...Let's hope so!!

Anna's Ear Tube insertion on Friday went well.  Her ears, according to the doctor, were "super tiny" so he had to use the "super tiny" tubes.  Tiny ear canals are a common trait among children with Down syndrome.

Anyway, Anna recovered quickly and had a great weekend being spoiled by Grandma and Grandpa.  In fact, she recovered so quickly that Jonathan and I were able to sneak away for a wedding down in Baltimore for the weekend (more on that in a later post).

We are supposed to go back to the ENT in a couple weeks for a follow-up hearing test where we are confindent that all will go well!

All done!


  1. Ha, and I was worried! You were just having a great weekend!

    Thanks for the update!!

  2. We have noticed a significant difference in Emily's hearing since getting tubes and hopefully you'll see the same thing with Anna :-)

  3. So glad it all went smoothly, and glad you guys were able to slip away for some adult time together.

  4. Yeah Anna! Glad to hear everything went well. Lindsey also had to have the "mini tubes" placed.

  5. Glad everything went well!! Looking forward to seeing you all soon!

  6. I hope this makes all the difference. Glad the op went well. I have Saira's ear test coming up. I am hoping for fluid (its either that or she's actually deaf in one ear)
