My DS's ear surgery
My middle son has some hearing trouble that we are finally scheduled to have corrected, insha'Allah. I will be taking him to Denver on the 22nd to get the pre-op exam done and then the surgery will be on the 23rd. As much as I hate the idea of surgery... I am getting excited about the possibility of restoring his hearing. There are some habits that he has which I think are related to not hearing well, and I am hoping for some improvement with them. And the great part is that if we don't fix it with this surgery at least we will know that the inner ear is fine and we will proceed with a hearing aide. Anyway, please remember him in your duas.
I am a mother to four wonderful kids and the wife to one wonderful Egyptian! We live in a small town in the Midwest and work in our small businesses. I am also a Waldorf preschool teacher and childcare provider, a backyard chicken lady, a part time homeschooler, and a generally crunchy mama (think hijabi in birks).
