For the youngest little. This wasn't expected but is definitely needed. We have been going through our states early intervention program to get her into speech therapy and found out she has no hearing in her right ear. We had tubes placed when she had her palate repaired but they didn't last very long. Tomorrow at 7:45 she will have new tubes put in, her ears cleaned and her throat checked. Please say a prayer for our girl, she has a rough time with anesthesia and I am a little worried. However the alternative would be not to redo the tubes and have her hearing further decline and for our girl who is a lover of all things music that would be a shame.
