KIANNA... In July Kianna went to her pediatrician for her yearly well-check. While examining her the doctor noticed that she had a hole in her eardrum. She sent her to an ENT specialist who ordered a CAT scan. It was determined that she had a blockage in her ear and a 40% hearing loss in her left ear.

So yesterday morning we headed to the hospital and checked into the out-patient surgical center at 5:30. Kianna played in the waiting room until she was called back to pre-op. She was scared and quite aware of what was going on. (It really was easier when she was 2 and didn't understand). The surgery lasted almost 2 1/2 hours and the doctor removed a cystoma covering one end of her ear drum and the mastoid was blocking the other end. He repaired the hole in the eardrum and put a tube into her other ear.

We were back home a little after noon and Kianna slept most of the day. Her equilibrium was off and she complained that her head hurt. She has to take it easy for the next 10 days, but hopefully she will have no more problems.
