Wow...2 posts in a week...I'm on a roll. Just a quick update before bed.
Both kiddos are sleeping soundly right now in their own beds. That's a topic for another post:) It has been a eventful few weeks. As with all families, summers are filled with lots of activities, birthday parties, celebrations, doctor visits, etc. Our family is no different.
Ian turned 6 this year (yikes). At his check up with his pediatrician, he didn't do so well on his hearing test or his vision test. Being the thorough pediatrician that Dr. Sood is, he recommended following up with our ENT (Dr. Vaidya) and an pediatric optometrist. So, after my mind stopped swirlling around thinking of all of the possible reasons why he wasn't hearing or seeing well, I made the appointments. Long story short, he does have significant hearing loss in his right ear. The doctor said the tube was plugged up with wax and "gunk" and it would need to be removed. After that, we would re-test his hearing and see if it improved. If not, we'll do some additional testing. He had surgery last Thursday to remove the tube. It was a quick surgery, but Ian was NOT happy waking up at all. It was rough. But, we made it through. We go back to see the doctor on July 25th. In the mean time, we saw the pediatric optemetrist. Ian is near sighted and has astigmatism in both eyes. So, he's now sporting a cool pair of glasses. He loves them so far.
Drew....sweet Drew turns 4 this Sunday. Wow...hard to believe. He's our dramatic child. He's a whiner. Drama, drama, drama. But, he's so loveable. We had our dental check ups early in June. 6 months ago, Drew had one cavity and the dentist said we'd just need to keep an eye on it. This time...my little munchkin has a mouth full of cavities. So many that he will have to be sedated to have all of the work done. Lots of crowns, fillings, etc....ON BABY TEETH. Oh my....with my fear of dentists, it's not going to be fun. I'm trying really hard not to pass this fear of mine on to my boys. We are getting a second opinion later this month. With that much work, I want to know we're doing the right thing.
