Tuesday Saidie went to the hospital bright and early for the appointment we've been waiting on for two months. The plan was to sedate her, clean her ears, possibly insert ear tubes, and finally to give her a hearing test using brain electrodes. After waiting about 3 hours she was wheeled away in a wagon clutching her piglet and blanket. Within the hour the doctor came to tell me he had inserted a tube in her right ear. All structures seemed to be in order in the ear canals. Much later we were ushered back to Phase 2 recovery where Saidie was sitting in a chair crying. I scooped her up and held her on my lap. She was not pleased with her IV or being stuck in the hospital room. Within minutes she calmed down and looked at the easter animal shaped rubber band bracelets and tiny stuffed hedgehog we found for her in the hospital gift shop. Before we left, Saidie downed an apple juice and two bags of Teddy Grahams.

We haven't heard the results of the hearing test yet, but the doctor didn't expect the audiologist to find any big surprises.
