My sweet little girl has been dealing with ear infection upon ear infection since September. The current one has been since late March and did not want to go away. After 3 cycles of different antibiotics, she is finally starting to get better. I learned yesterday during her hearing test that she cannot hear. It saddened me to see her head turn the opposite way of the noise. Then at the test that checks the response to the eardrum, I learned that her ears are so filled with fluid that the eardrum is not responding either....You can imagine how much I wanted to cry when I saw that my 16 month old can't hear well, and I have no idea for how long.
After seeing the doctor, I am more confused than ever. He admitted that her hearing level is very low and she has lots of fluid...BUT he said that the decision goes either way. He could do the surgery and it will probably do wonders, but it could also possibly go away on its own. His suggestion was to give it a little more time and see. He said that if I choose to go forward with the surgery, he is all for it. He confessed that I live with her and see what she has gone through, so it's up to me. I reluctantly agreed to wait a bit, but I haven't sat still about this since. My gut strongly tells me that it will help her immensely. My feeling is that she has been going for possibly months without hearing, why torture her and keep it up. But, there's also the conservative side of me that is scared of putting my baby under anesthesia. Everyone I talk to that knows her history, thinks we should go for it. I'm torn.....Do I stand up for her as her mother and take the plunge or go the conservative route and wait a little while????

Needless to say, this look wasn't going to cut it today. So while I was getting Keaton dressed and ready to go (actual pictures to come at a later time) He Youtubed "How to tie a windsor knot" and just kept getting fustrated because no matter how closely he followed, the tie still looked like this:
(I'm sure you get the picture) So I think my new challenge to myself is to learn how to perfectly tie a tie so I can do it for him!
What is your new challenge this week?
