Just when we thought that our plate was full in life, God dished us up some dessert!

Let there be sound!

And there was sound!

Stas had surgery today to have PE tubes put in. We had an early trip to the hospital and he was so pleasant about it.

He had tubes and circ and it all went well. Great doctors. We were unable to get the ABR test done for the hearing but we will wait and see if he needs anything else to be sedated for and do it at that time. The circ isn't bothering him a bit....yay!

Here he is at almost 6pm and we are doing all sorts of "tests" (very official of course!) and he sure hears better. Unfortunately we won't know for a while just how he hears until he starts copying sounds or saying something other than "mama" and "baba." When I rub my fingers together behind his head he turns to see what it is. And, that is with all sorts of dried blood filling his canal. Sounds good huh?? Time will tell but I am somewhat optimistic. Unfortunately, when fluid is there for so long it causes anatomical problems from the prolonged pressure...we will see if that is the case with Stas.

Oh, did I mention that I love him...and I would like 100 more of him? Please pray for hearing...it's an extra challenge to learn without it.


  1. Oh, i was thinking he was just having his pre-op today.....gosh, I talked to you and didn't even ask about it!
    But we were talking about some pretty interesting turn of events, so I guess that's my excuse :)

    So glad it went well!!! I can't wait for the day I can tell Toma is hearing better. (course, he needs the hearing aids first!)

  2. It sounds like he did great :)! It also sounds like you want more. What are you and Jodi cooking up ;)??

  3. I'll be praying!glad it went well :)

  4. Hurray for tubes!!! I'm so glad it went well and that you're already noticing improvement!

    Whatever you and Jodi are "cooking up", Lisa and I want in...unless it's another canoe ride with Rich that is. ha ha ha!

  5. LOL...you guys are so funny. SO happy to hear stas is doing so well :) he is so yummy!! I wonder what you are up too? OH that ? heehee.
