After the surgery, we all thought he could hear better. He would often cover his ears when things go too loud. After a year, the tubes fell out. Life was good. No infections. Then we noticed his hearing would always get worse when he had a cold. Lately the problem didn’t seem to improve with or without congestion. He always sits right in front of the very loud TV. His two favorite words are what and huh?? We took him to an ENT who said he was deaf. His hearing has gotten so bad that sweet Gameboy was reading lips. His suggestion for restoring Gameboy’s hearing is another set of tubes. We are praying this surgery helps!!! We love you buddy!!
