Yesterday I took Andon to another follow up appointment at the ear Dr. Yes, you heard that right, another. He had his third set of tubes put in his ears about 3 weeks ago. When we went for a follow up a week ago, Andon was still not hearing very well in his right ear. Due to his condition, he actually was born with a ten decibel loss. I don't really know what that means. It was just explained to us as a very slight directional hearing loss. No big deal.
So when we went in last week it was more than a 20 decibel loss. The Dr. started giving us information about another surgeon he knew who could go in a do a prosthesis for the ear bones. It felt a little overwhelming but he said let's go ahead and do some ear drops in that right ear for another week. He said maybe the tube was blocked. I have to be honest, I figured, it's not blocked and we'll be scheduling another surgery in another week. I hate that I took that on but it seems like that's the way it's gone in the past.
So we started the drops and continued the praying. Every night, either I or Jared along with Andon would pray for complete restoration of Andon's hearing. I would actually hold my hands on his ears while I prayed it. And, you know what. He healed them! When they did the hearing test yesterday, his hearing was perfect! In both ears!! PRAISE GOD for He is GOOD!
