Wednesday morning, bright and early, I have to drive my DD to the hospital for another surgery. A few months ago, she lost her hearing completely on one side. Oops… back to the ear specialist- or in her case- a neuro-otologist.
Knock on wood, the surgeon is planning to replace some ear bones with prosthesis parts to restore her hearing again. This will involve another rebuilt ear drum, too. Why did this happen? When she was a teenager, she developed a rare ear disease called cholesteatoma. Many surgeries later, the disease is removed, but now the previous reconstruction surgery shifted, causing the hearing failure.
OK, that is enough medical jargon. I will let you know how she does in my next post and if her hearing is restored. I usually do not blog about family members, but many of my readers know who my daughter is or have met her.
