ENT

The ENT in town suggested we see the ENT at Children's Hospital. Canyon has a 13 year old tube partially still functioning in his left ear. His right ear, the ear drum is collapsing and sucking inward. This is causing his little ear bones not to vibrate right and some hearing loss. He has 2 prescriptions for now and will have a recheck in a few months. They aren't recommending tubes again because he has had several and each time scar tissue is left. This also causes hearing loss. However, the doctor was really concerned with Canyon's sleep apnea. His sleep study from 5 years ago shows he only gets 20-25% of the oxygen he should be getting at night. Possibly another dreaded sleep study may need to be done, but for sure we are looking at a c-pap in his near future.
Sahara was trying to get Canyon's mind off of the ear appointment (his least favorite of doctor visits) with funny filters.
He also had to have his ears looked at through a microscope and to bribe him to do it was the promise of a hamburger afterward. Hey, whatever it takes!!
