Grommit surgery success!!!
YAY!!! 9 months after the first attempt to put grommits in Ellies ears, we finally have success...The first attempt wasnt succesful as Ellies ears were too small.
My fear all week was that she was going to have bad seizures and this would prevent the surgery going ahead. As this is what has prevented it happening the last 3 times.
The surgeon said that the surgery went well, but it was the hardest set of tubes he has ever done, he said he has never seen such small ear canals. But he got them in. He also said that when they suctioned the fluid out of her ears, there was a massive amount that came out, and it almost blocked his suction machine.
So with saying that our Little Ellie, should be hearing much better in the next few days or so. We need to go back for a review of the surgery in 3 weeks and then some time after that we will organise a hearing test.
In recovery we got to pick a balloon for Ellie and of course we picked pink. It came attached with a gorgeous seal teddy bear... Ellie however was more fascinated with the balloon, she has never really paid much attention to them, but she couldnt take her eyes off it, and kept tugging on the string.
Back home now, Ellie is recovering in bed.. so time to put my feet up and have a coffee... Mmmmm
