Yes, It's been awhile. I guess ADD keeps me from focusing on keeping this blog updated. But I've decided to share some news. Mamush had PE tubes placed in his ears in October. For those of you that know how minor this is for most children, I feel you rolling your eyes, but this was huge for us because this was his second try at tubes. You see, his ear canals are like a preemie's. Our local ENT sent us to a friend of his in Houston, Newton Duncan, who deals with Down's children on a daily basis. Apparently, they also have small canals. We thought we were going for a consult for hearing aides, but after examining Mamush, Dr. Duncan said he has dealt with smaller ears! And now he can hear!!! Imagine the tears that streamed down my face in the recovery room when Mamush said, "That's too loud."
