Miss Maimie saw a new doctor today who checked her hearing and evaluated her for tube placement. Unfortunately, she has quite a bit of fluid built up behind her tympanic membranes and will need the tubes to drain it from her ears. We knew that eustachian tube problems are common with cleft conditions, so we expected that this surgery might be necessary. The outpatient procedure will take place next Tuesday, April 3, and should go fairly quickly. Please keep our little sweetie in your prayers.
